This is a video about some very basic, nuts and bolts, screenwriting things. Cuts, dissolves, montages, etc. Oh and I forgot voice overs in this take, but like montages, voice overs are exceedingly rare now in screenplays so you should probably stay away. Show, don't tell. Some spoilers for Momento and a couple of others.
