Some of you are directors, and I was wondering what do you think about camera-angle directions, transitions, and similar devices in scripts? I have read countless times that it is a huge no-no, especially in spect scripts, but recently bumped onto a tip by John August and Craig Mazin, of Scriptnotes: 1. "Don't write directions in your screenplay" is bad advice. Do directors really mind? Or, in reality, actually like it, as Mazin and August say?
