Tweetstorm: Geoff LaTulippe on Avoiding Red Flags in Screenplays

Good tips, but I wish Geoff would just put down the first two tips about typos and formatting as givens and get to the good stuff. Everyone who has worked on more than one script already knows this. It started to get interesting when he reached tip 3, but then he just stopped. I was hoping he’d get into red flags in terms of story, character, structure, the actual writing of a script. That’s where I usually see the amateurs separated from the pros. I’ve seen typos and formatting errors in some of the biggest superstars of the screenwriting world. But, their scripts still had this skill level in the writing department that made it immediately apparent that you’re reading a pro script.
