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.
