Hi I was wondering if anyone could assist on the script guidelines for 'filler' scenes (not sure what they are called).
I mean the scenes which have no actual.dialog but help set the mood or location of the next one.
An example of such would be, a scene takes place in a classroom and contains dialog. The scene before was a shot of the school, then a shot of a corridor with kids walking around, then we head into the scene with dialog.
As a writer do you have to include these additional scenes in the script writing process, or is this left to the director to decide what shots would work?
Hope this makes sense.
Any one have any experience in this?
