Re: Importance of cadence in screenplays?

I don’t drive myself nuts thinking about cadence. It’s difficult enough to write the exact words I want the actor to say without the way I want the actor to say them.

I don’t take...

Re: How do you signify a short break between two different shots?

It doesn’t go without saying. There are no shortcuts.

Re: What does (a beat) mean in this context?

Another use of “(beat)” is to indicate a reversal or change of direction.
