How do I follow screenplay format?

A Caveat

The desired format in Hollywood seems to vary, depending upon the source. In general, the message to writers seems to be that spec scripts need to be very readable to stand a chance. Keep in mind that the director ultimately decides shots, angles, and transitions. These are tempting to add. Doing so gives Hollywood's overworked readers one more reason to move on to another script.
