Reverse Film

A special effect a writer will use from time to time is to show the film running in reverse. People will walk backwards. Things once broken will magically be reconstructed. If not overused, this effect can work well.

Here's one way to place a segment of a scene in reverse:

In this example, I start the reversing with the Subheading REVERSE FILM.

From there I format the reversed segment as if it were a montage.

I call out the end of the reverse segment with another Subheading, END REVERSE FILM.
