Good question Alex... in this particular screenplay...the character ages in a prison cell. There are 3 shots of him at different ages...young...middle aged...and old. So you have the same person, same location but the time lapse is in years. So that's why I'm pretty sure LATER would not be used because of the time span
hey guys I have come across a format issue that I can't quite solve. The opening sequence of a screenplay I'm writing shows the main character aging from ten years old into adulthood. Same character ...Same location...but over a ten year period. I've checked different writing sources and all have given different solutions. I wonder would LATER be acceptable since the scenes take place in the same location.
