Script submission formatting?
« on: July 15, 2008, 03:05:31 AM »
I was just reading one of the "send your scripts here" pages, and it said they'd accept it in the standard format. Where can a person obtain this standard formatting? Am I just not going enough pages back?

The standard script format is to write in three columns.  First the timecode of the movie when the riff you're writing would be said.  Second a reference to what is going on in the movie which can be a description of what's on screen or a quote of the movie's dialog.  The Third is the riff itself.  If you have Microsoft Excel or Open Office the Riff Raff Theater website has a template you can download that makes it very easy.

They also have some guidelines for writing the riffs that are pretty standard now for anyone accepting scripts.  Its in their FAQ page.

Much appreciated, I'll get cracking with some "jokes". If only I could watch the films and think up the riffs at work, I'd be a happy boy.

Yeah, its a pretty easy process and I was really shocked to see how simple it can be done on Excel.


He's the hero that Gotham deserves
But not the one it needs right now
And so we'll hunt him... Because he can take it
Because he's not a hero... He's a silent guardian
A watchful protector... A DARK KNIGHT.
