A neat little trick they use in the bizz, is different colored scripts for different draft stages. It all starts on standard white paper. Anytime a scene is reworked, it changes color in the script, if its one page that needs to change, they pull it right out and add in the next color.  What’s lame is that they only use solid colors. I mean granted it’s a great system, keep everyone on the same page, yada yada…

This is how it would go if I made the rules: FIRST DRAFT – Everyone in the crew would be in the same room for a mandatory script reading- where one person would dictate the script in its entirety, anybody who needs a copy of a script would then hand write their personal copy.

The handwritten first drafts would be collected by a PA, who would be in charge of reading all of the script interpretations, and amalgamating them into the SECOND DRAFT. Which is typewritten by a different PA, so as to eliminate any bias, on Leopard print paper.

The THIRD DRAFT will come at the request of anyone who has a problem with reading the script through the animal print. It will be edited on a computer in font size 8, and printed on zebra print paper.

Side note: These styles of paper can be found at any scrapbook store.

Any script changes after that will be sent out only by text message, finished with “Pass it on”
