Rewriting on paper vs. screen

After I finish rewrites on my laptop, I like to do a 2nd (or 50th as it may be) pass on a printed-out version of a script. I’m not sure why, but I always seem to catch more errors and fixes when I read it on paper. I think it might have something to do with the way we read screens–we’re trained to scan more and scroll through things. On paper, we’re trained to read more carefully.

I'm putting together a comprehensive course to teach actors how to produce short films and web series. Sign up to be notified of when it launches.
