The Screenplay: Revisions


From Blue to GoldenRod Revision

This guide explains the reasons to use the script revision features in film production and how they are applied.

Once a screenplay goes into production, it is now designated as a Shooting Script. Certain features are applied to the script during the entire production process to identify different versions of the script. While these features can be used during the writing process, especially when working with a writing partner, a screenplay with any of these features should never be submitted to a potential producer.

This guide will explain the uses of the script revision features and how they are applied.


By the end of this guide you will be able to:

  • Discover the purpose of using revisions in a script
  • Learn what revision colors are and how to use them
  • Identify a “locked” script is and why it’s important
  • Understand why a scene is never omitted from a production script
