Re: POV - cutting back and forth

thank you - I'm glad I don't have much POVs in there. From what you told me (and what I feel about it), it is only really necessary maybe two/three times in my script. The rest I'll do as before or...

POV - cutting back and forth

Re: "Ghost" appearance

As I said, the audience should notice it, if suddenly a third person pops up in a sealed compound, who does not belong there. Let's say you write about about a prison cell, and suddenly that Viking...

People talking with headsets
