Written for Cinestress' screenwriting workshop. Not even going to bother to give this thing a proper name.

Hi, this short critique is for the workshop:

You correctly used the slug-line to introduce the setting. Your margins look good. Characters names are in all caps when introduced and when speaking, which is good.

As far as centering the dialogue goes: I'm not sure what software you used, but for centering the dialogue properly in Microsoft Word you can select the dialogue text, open the paragraph tool, and create a hanging indent to keep it from spreading all the way across the page.

I hope this is useful to you!

Thank you! That is useful, though it's probably worth looking into a proper screenwriting program sometime.

Hey take a look at WriterDuet it is a free online screenwriting program that will correctly format your script.

At the moment the Dialogue is formatted incorrectly as is some of the spacing. Screenwriting programs like WRITERDUET and the industry standard FINAL DRAFT.

The conversation is amusing :-)
