    Script help?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by MrStoryTeller, Sep 19, 2015.

    I'm not sure where to put this, as it involves Screenwriting but isn't a critique, it's a question.

    I haven't written in a while and I'm trying to get back by working on some of my Screenplays, however I'm a little rusty and am in need of an answer. When you're using a location and have two characters in different areas, do you use CUT TO: or just the location of the area.

    My two characters are in some mine caves on different levels and I'm not sure if it should like like this example:

    CHARACTER A

    Alright, just come out now and I won't hurt you!

    CHARACTER A raises her hands in the air.

    CHARACTER A
    (Cont)
    See?

    MYSTERIOUS FIGURE steps out of the shadows.

    MINE CAVES

    CHARACTER B is clutching his foot, wincing at the pain.
    Or if I should use:
    CHARACTER A

    Alright, just come out now and I won't hurt you!

    CHARACTER A raises her hands in the air.

    CHARACTER A
    (Cont)
    See?

    MYSTERIOUS FIGURE steps out of the shadows.

    CUT TO:
    INT - MINE CAVES - NIGHT

    CHARACTER B is clutching his foot, wincing at the pain.
    I'm pretty sure I don't have to use a CUT TO: but I'm not positive, because they're pretty far away from each other and the distance isn't as short as let's say, the bedroom and the living room.
