I'm writing my spec TV pilot in Final Draft and am getting myself confused about whether I should be using (O.C.) or (O.S.) in certain situations - can some helpful person clarify these terms for me?
Obviously, (O.C.) indicates that the dialogue is spoken by someone who is Off Camera, while (O.S.) means the words are said by someone Off Screen. But should I only use Off Camera when the character is in the scene, but isn't visible? If so, does Off Screen indicate dialogue that the audience can hear but the characters on screen can't?
It's all too much for my tiny brain. Somebody, anybody, please, put me out of my misery. Bueller? Bueller?
