[Yes, I see the pun in the title]
Over on my post What Bad Science Fiction Can Teach Us About Writing Screenplay Description, Susanna asked a great question:
What about an animated movie script? I read somewhere that they should be more descriptive than the other ones, is that true? I don’t know to what extent we have to explain what we see for example in a construction site. If the vehicles or objects on it will be important for the actions that will follow do we have to name them first or they can just appear on the action lines? Thank you!!
My reply got lengthy, and when that happens, I’d rather not hide it in the bowels of a reply thread. I’d rather give it its own post.
So here we go.
