    Screenwriting How do i handle extended computer dialogue/text?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by tanstaafl74, Sep 29, 2015.

    The title is a bit general, but in screenwriting, how would I handle an extended time (perhaps a few minutes of opening sequence) of comments and/or discussion in an online format? A couple examples, a forum discussion, twitter conversation, or even comments on something like an imgur post? Would I put that as dialogue but notate it as computer dialogue? Put it in the description?

    Thanks.

    I'd put it in the description. It's a visual image as opposed to spoken dialogue.
