  • Scene heading and transition format

    I wanted to ask if there is a particular way you would write a transition for the following scenario;

    A man sits in his car at lights as the car next to him revs his engine. The man revs his back.

    At this point we go into a long flashback that is the main portion of the story.

    At the end of the flashback we return to the point as the cars roar off in a race.

    At the moment I have the scene heading and then below, where action would be, it says we find the man where we left him.

    So, is there an industry standard formatting for what I should write here?


    Thanks

    INT. CAR - PRESENT DAY

    Doug looks over to the car next to him. The guy in that car smiles. Doug focuses on his smile and thinks back to...

    EXT. BEACH -- 1978

    Doug rememebers this.

    INT. CAR -- BACK TO PRESENT DAY

    can do it a few ways like

    INT. CAR - PRESENT DAY

    XXXXXXXX ACTION LINES XXXXX

    FLASHBACK

    write out scene

    END FLASHBACK BACK TO CAR


    Whatever is most clear on the page. Don't get caught up "the right way" as it varies...

      Thanks for that response. I think the back to present day would be clearest in my script.
