Expert screenwriting tips by working screenwriters
Every week, we receive a few scripts that use:
We see ...
We see an UNKNOWN MAN running towards the exit, gun in hand.
‘We see’ is a non-pro mistake, it’s simply not needed.
The above example would be better as:
An UNKNOWN MAN runs towards the exit, gun in hand.
Pro screenwriters never use ‘We see’ - it’s the domain of non-pro screenwriters. Avoid using it - it is unnecessary and simply screams ‘non-pro writer’ at your reader, not a good thing.
Due to production work we have suspended our coverage service for now.
