Screenwriting comes with a strict set of rules that need to be applied during writing or when publishing your script (e.g. use only the font: Courier 12pt or all capital letters for character’s name first appearance).
The set of rules applied, generally depend on the country or on the studio you want to publish.
The French standard is another popular format.
Like in the American Standard, each page needs to describe one minute on the screen.
The actions take the whole width of the page while the dialogs are presented in the bottom right corner, left aligned.
