Screenwriting Glossary: Script Frenzy Tip #3

As aspiring screenwriters around the world try to write a 100-page script in April, many need to brush up on key industry terms. We recommend the Glossary.

We’ve highlighted two of our favorite definitions: “Courier 12 pitch: The main font in use in the U.S. by both publishers and the Hollywood film industry … V.O.: Abbreviation for Voice Over, denoting that the speaker is narrating the action onscreen.”

To help all the aspiring screenwriters in the audience participating in the Script Frenzy writing marathon, we will feature a new script writing tool or tip every day this month. If you are taking the challenge, keep us posted in the comments. Follow along on Twitter as well.
