You’ve seen scripts, and you’ve seen the most acclaimed movies of our time like recent ones including Fences, Moonlight and Get Out and classics like Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption.
Through a relatively new Instagram account, ‘Script to Screen,’ you can watch scenes from these films as the script scrolls below, watching it in action!
As opposed to reading the script and then watching a film clip (or vice versa), the scrolling script right below the scene is an immersive new way to depict these films.
The ‘Script to Screen’ Instagram posts not only come with the directing, writing and cinematography information, but also ‘Did You Know?’ facts about the film as well.
Watch below ‘Script to Screen’ clips from several great films below:

Swipe ← • ◦ ◦ “Moonlight” (2016) “Give me the damn money!” What do you guys think about “Moonlight”? • Directed by: Barry Jenkins • Written by: Barry Jenkins & Tarell Alvin McCraney (story). • Cinematography by: James Laxton • Did you know? In an interview, Barry Jenkins said that the three actors who play Chiron never met during production. He wanted each of them to build their own persona of Chiron during their respective segments, with no influence from the other portrayals. The same technique was used with the actors who play Kevin. • Suggested by: @thejaredmackshow @yanal_abuzaid4 @omarraef1 @Jhordanrobert @Colbarrios

DM us???? – Did you know? Jordan Peele was inspired to write this movie by Eddie Murphy’s stand-up film Eddie Murphy: Delirious (1983). Murphy jokes about horror films, including Poltergeist (1982) and The Amityville Horror (1979), and asks why white people don’t just leave when there’s a ghost in the house. Murphy jokes that as he was showing his wife around a beautiful house, if he heard a ghost whisper “GET OUT!”, he would immediately tell her, “Too bad we can’t stay, baby!” Peele repeats Murphy’s joke on the DVD commentary.
