Script

In typography, a typefaces designed with connecting characters in imitation of fine handwriting. There are various levels of script, ranging from informal (brush style) to Spencerian styles. All are calligraphic in nature. In script typefaces, letters are connected; in cursive, letters are not connected. Effective and decorative, script fonts should only be used sparingly, and never in all caps.

The term script also refers to a fundamental element in film, video, television, and multimedia production. Essentially, a script contains the "instructions" for making a production, including scenes, scenery, props, characters, and the complete character dialogue and actions. Some scripts, called shooting scripts, may contain specific camera angles. In multimedia, scripts also need to indicate the structure of the presentation, the level of interactivity, the interface design, etc.
