1. FUNDAMENTAL EXTREME ERROR on your title page that could VERY BASIC.
Consider, the USA is NOT the only film industry in the world. Here are some facts:-
- The oldest fil industry in the world is that of France.
- In terms of numbers employed and films produced, the largest film industry in the world is that of India
- The country with the largest number of cinemas is Russia.
- The largest audience in the world is China.

So, consider, your screenplay falls into the hands of a top Studio executive who loves it in... London, England. now what? He has NO CLUE where AR is. Is that Argentina perhaps? You don't put USA on your screenplay address, and just maybe, that all important letter from some top director or studio just won't be arriving in your letterbox, it ends up in Angola instead.

2. Whatever si beyond the title page is not loading. Again, a basic error. You give this format to some cash-strapped studio with old computers and BINGO, it's file 13 for your script.

ANSWER: AGAIN TOTAL 100% FAILURE

If a production company can't open it, its dead meat. End of project there and then.

RULE 101 - Have it in a format that people can read - all I'm getting is the front page.
