In case he still checks here, i've got some more advice on writing screenplays. the key elements are: setting, dialouge, blocking(actions or
movements), and camera shots.
My advice is, write out the descriptions of the different settings all at the same time. then write all the dialouge (without camera angles or stage
directons(blocking)). then insert the blocking, then finally the camera shots. If you try to write in the blocking and camera shots while writing the
dialouge, it gets discourageing, as you do alot of writing and dont get far in the plot.
Also, dont use pen and paper, except for maybe brainstorming. It's too hard to insert things you forgot to add(or are saving to add in later, like
the camera and blocking directions).
Hopefully it goes well for you
