Scott Bakula Tobit Writer
PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Use brads: round heads, about an inch and a quarter to an inch and a half long. Acco is a common brand; you can use the number 5, one and a quarter inch long, or a bit longer. Use the two brads to bind the script pages between the card stock covers.
Bind your script between two sheets of card stock (65-110 lbs.) by fastening it with two brass brads. Card stock: use a solid conservative color such as manila, white or gray. Nothing is written on the card stock cover. If you punch three holes into the card stock, which is what youll do with the pages of the script, leave the center hole empty. Or you can do what I do, which is to punch the three holes in the script pages but make only two holes in the card stock, using the point of a pencil or scissors. That way you dont have an empty hole on the cover.
Make a title page for the script. Title, your name, contact info. Dont put the WGA number anywhere, it dates the script. You keep the WGA number in a safe place for when you need it as you will if you option or sell your script.
The standard is simple, so just follow it:
