III. What are the differences between scripts before production and scripts which are ready for production (if any)?
Sample script: not intended for production, but to showcase the screenwriting skills of the author, in hopes of attracting the attention of an agent or producer. Often a spec script which fails to sell goes on to be a sample script.
Spec script: aka (speculative screenplay) is a screenplay for a movie that is shopped or sold on the open market, as opposed to one commissioned by a studio or production company. It is written without being commissioned on the speculative hope that it will be sold.
* for easier reading, often avoiding camera angles, editing directions, and technical intrusions
* by writers who hope to have a script optioned and eventually purchased by producers or studios;
* by writer/directors who want to direct a film themselves;
* by amateur writers hoping to convince a literary agent to represent them or a producer to hire them.
Script: The blueprint or roadmap that outlines a movie story through visual descriptions, actions of characters and their dialogue.
Manuscript: a script before it has been published.
Master Scene Script: A script formatted without scene numbering (the usual format for a spec screenplay).
Shooting Script: A script that has been prepared to be put into production (used in production of motion picture). They make use of scene numbers (along with certain other formatting conventions described below), and they follow a well defined set of procedures specifying how script revisions should be implemented and circulated.
Production Script: A script in which no more major changes or rewrites is anticipated to occur, which is used day by day for filming on a movie set.
