Hi, I'm Jared Drake and I'm going to talk to you about writing a test script. If you want to write a test script, my suggestion is to go out and get some type of screen writing software. Final Draft is a very popular software, screen writing software that's out there as well as Movie Magic. Both of those are industry standards. If you get one of those programs to help you write a test script, there's templates that you can upload within those programs to show you the format, to show you the structure roughly to give you an idea how to break the script up, how, where dialogue needs to come as far as physically on the page. So use one of those programs, follow the guidelines, try and keep to the standards, the industry standards, don't make the script your own, just follow the template and see what your story looks like if it's in a script, when in it's in a script format.
