Be able to create one kind of subtext on every page of your script. Why?

Actors

Love subtext because it gives them the chance to act on multiple levels, saying one thing, but delivering a deeper meaning and emotion.

 

Directors

Love subtext because it gives their visually entertaining movie more depth, meaning, and value.
