I sort of understand the difference between a spec script and a shooting script, in the sense that the shooting script includes numbering and small directions for use by the production team. However, I am a little unclear of exactly how a spec script should be formatted. I have never written a screenplay before however I intend to dabble in that area soon and would like to know the proper etiquette in terms on the formatting. I have searched for a few scripts online and they all seem to be the shooting script which is not completely helpful. My main question is how should scenes be written in a spec script. I have been told not to include numbering in the spec script so in terms of writing a scene, do I write the whole scene and then move onto the next one? Or to be clearer, say there are two scenes happening simultaneously, and I would like to cut between them. Is it okay to alternate between the two different scenes a number of times (or would this be considered the job of the shooting script?) Am I simply meant to write out the two scenes in their entirety separately?
