The one thing I like and miss about having a paper copy of a script is that I can mark or circle mistakes in red, write notes in the margain, use a bunch of colors, draw chickens or aliens and the like.

The ability to circle half a page of overstatement and scratch an X,
The fun of scrawling YES YESH YES HAHAHAH!  following a bit of wonder,
or just being able leave a coffee cup ring
are the things I miss the most.

it was a really nice part of the old  college class workshopping days to have the copies come back and see what people did in similar places.  "Everyone scratched out page 7, 22 and 55 !"  -(what's wrong with it being written in 3% Tagalog nowadays?!)

Private script notes are great, cut and paste works, but what if there was a way to save those dubious TV'rs from making six pages of notes about dotting I's or where to put the exclamation mark?
Little things deserve red mark slashes, leaving those spell checker guys more time to look into plot, structure and character.

Only the author gets to look at those super private cat scratched copies of their script.
TV'rs only see written reviews.

could be a cool way to read and help faster, line by line
or it could be a total nightmare if people start drawing grimy caricatures upon otherwise sexy scenes

Movie production and the writer?


Writer pokes script, "Read it. Read it all."


Writer waxes lyrical displaying a depth of knowledge and background to flesh out each character.


Druing movie production what does a writer actually do?

I'll tell you what the writer does. She alternatively cries, face-palms, and contemplates murder as she sees what "they" are doing to her script.
