How To: Format Your Script

November 5, 2022, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM


In this online workshop, participants will learn the basics of formatting scripts for the screen, and how to communicate their precise vision for a scene without ever having to open their mouth.

The workshop will cover the script formatting differences between film scripts and TV scripts. Participants will also be directed towards resources to continue their learning.

Deliverables from this workshop include:

  • presentation slides in PDF format
  • cheat sheet on script formatting
  • example annotated script

Instructor: Maya Appavoo

Maya Appavoo is a 21-year-old writer and award-winning composer from Edmonton, Alberta. A comedy writer at heart, she graduated the Writing for Film, Television, and Games program at Vancouver Film School, but found a love for drama along the way. She’s now the lead writer on Road X, an audio drama podcast. Her goal is to be able to represent herself as a queer woman of colour, and create the media she wishes she’d had growing up, so the younger generations grow up feeling less alone (or to create an army of queer brown girls who can help her take down the patriarchy, either’s fine by her).

*This course is open to FAVA Members and non-members. Payment must be completed to participate in the workshop.
