HOW TO FORMAT OFF–SCREEN (O.S) AND VOICE OVER (V.O) IN A SCREENPLAY

Extensions [off-screen (O.S.), voice over (V.O)]

[Off-screen (O.S.) placed directly to the right of the character name. An Off-Screen voice can be heard from a character out of the camera range, or from another room altogether)

Suddenly, the front exit door opens, and Matilda gasps, drops the phone recklessly and starts running to the inner room.

FRANK (O.S.)
It's me, Matilda!
It's me Frank!

[Voice over (V.O.) placed directly to the right of the character name. A Voice Over is used in a narration or when the character thinks aloud during reflection]

Matilda is lying in the bed, fully awake but she looks unconscious.

MATILDA (V.O.)
Lugard you have to forgive me.
Just this night and it will never happen again, I promise.
