John August digs into the thought process behind how his app, Highland, and, by extension, Fountain as a whole, deals with
(cont’d) in screenplay formatting. The whole piece is interesting, but I especially like this bit:
The screenwriter is always the best judge of whether the dialogue is continuous, so you can just type it yourself.
That’s sort of the philosophy of Highland and Fountain: your script is exactly what you type, nothing more, nothing less.
I love that Fountain thrives. Part of the reason it does is August’s careful and considered stewardship.
