Thank you so much for this!! .w.
As a college student who is heavily considering screenwriting, this was a very good thing to help give me an idea of what to do after school. -w-

Thank you so much! I'm a fantasy writer and was asked by a friend of mine that's making a movie if I could write him part of a screenplay if he gave me details about a battle, since he's not good at describing battle scenes. I've never even looked at a screenplay before, but I told him yes I'd try. This was the first thing I saw typing "Writing screenplays" and I'm ecstatic that you made it so easy to understand! I'll have to look for more hard detail, but I'm confident that I can give him something that's at least decent to work with!

I also recommend reading up on war screenplays for how to handle battle sequences.

This and Sam Hamm's script for an unmade 1998 Planet of the Apes remake totally got me into screenwriting and I'm doing my own screenplay. ^^
