    I've got a good idea for a movie and I want to write it out but how would I go about doing this....any ideas?

    I know screen writers have a specific style they have to style their script in but i don't know what its called.

    Use Final Draft. Download and read a couple scripts. You're good to go.

    you can find screenwriting books fairly cheap, and theres a shit ton of them out there. Theres also some seminars if you wanted to go to a few of them.

    but def. get final draft, it will help you format things they way they're supposed to be.
