HOW TO FORMAT DREAM SEQUENCE IN A SCREENPLAY

Dream sequence (aligned flush left from the edge of the paper)

BEGIN DREAM SEQUENCE:

EXT. ROAD - NIGHT

Indistinctively, we see a man running exhaustively from one dark end of the lonely road.
Finally, we see him clearly. He is LUGARD.
But suddenly, we see four able bodied men running very closely and fiercely after him.
They have among them; rods, knives and long sticks.

Lugard, 31, is struggling to maintain enough gaps between him and them as he looks back continuously.
He has bruises on his face.
He looks tattered.

The able bodied men continue the massive chase on him until the gaps between them and him is no more.
Lugard turns back swiftly. Seeming to lose hope, he groans and then slows down and steers to the corner of the road where he now jumps into the gutter.
The men follow quickly and pounce on him.
They hit him with the rods and sticks.
Lugard cries out so painfully.

END DREAM SEQUENCE:

INT. GARCIA’S HOUSE – BEDROOM – NIGHT (SAME NIGHT)

We see MRS GARCIA lying in her bed with her eyes closed.
She then speaks out in pains.

MRS GARCIA
Don't kill my son!
Don't kill my son!
Lugard!!

She wakes up suddenly and sits up.
She looks around the room in fear.
