SCRIPT BREAKDOWN: (ONLY AVAILABLE IF NEEDED FOR THEATRE)

V.O: Voice over--- inner monologue
Beat— a little stillness in script.
Line— through phone or filtered
Fade out— just as it says: fading to new scene
Pan— camera moves
POV – through character's eyes

This story has been put into a script format—much like some I have read in high school and also having run into the Mc Beth—Anyways here I go.

OLD WEST DEVIL

EXTERIOR: A RUSTIC AREA, SAND ALL OVER THE PLACE. SOME RUNDOWN HOUSES AND LATE NIGHT. 

A bunch of horses tied to a post and a mysterious figure untying one of the only black horses and taking a blind fold off the horse' head. He hushes the horses and whispers his name into the ear of the black horse. Which seemed to have calmed the stallion.

BAR MAIDEN: (sitting across from the horse posts) HEY YOU!? YEAH! YOU?" (she points and pushes herself up from her seating position) You! (she stomps in her rather thick leather boots. With her finger pointed out)

MYSTERY GUY: (Jumps onto the horse and laughs at her) Too late missy! (he pulled the reins and cantered right around the Bar maiden.) You will not see this horse again.

(beat)

Bar maiden: Shoot (forming fists and releasing the annoyance in her voice) Who was that? (looks to her side trying to grasp a gun which mysteriously disappeared) Sneaky Arse! 

SCENE 1: NIGHT. ONE HOUR LATER 11PM. FRONT COURTYARD

CAMERA PANS AROUND A RATHER LARGE CROWD ALL LOOKING UPSET, TIRED AND TORN UP.

BAR MAIDEN (V.O)
The Sheriff has been angry with me.  Calling me Wench even though I'm not the one who should protect this town—even though there is nothing to protect. Or so I thought. 

BAR MAIDEN:  Okay everyone! We will find the thief! How in the hell did he even get to ten houses in one shot? (looking at a few women clutching their children in their arms) He must have had help!

Ha, good one. 

I've thought about writing a screenplay a few times, but it just seems so much hassle.

Heya, it might look complicated, but it is easy once you know your acronyms/words and just some of the rules.
