• ScreenVue Search Basics

    Doing a search in ScreenVue is easy. Simply type one or more search terms (the word or words that best describe the information you want to find) into the search box and hit [Enter] on your keyboard or click the [GO] button. In response, ScreenVue produces a results page: a list of Scene IDEAS, Scene DOWNLOADS, or Movie Titles (on one or multiple pages) related to your search terms, with the most relevant item appearing first, then the next, and so on. You can also select the [0-9 A B C D...] links on the top to go to your search results alphabetically.

  • Starting a NEW Search

    To start a new search (even though you still have old search results displayed), simply type in something new in the search box and hit [Enter].

  • Search Fields

    You can search by a word, a phrase, a movie title, a theme, a director, an actor, words within a movie plot, words within a Scene Idea or Scene Download short synopsis or long synopsis, or by the unique ScreenVue ID number given to every Scene Idea and Scene Download (i.e., CV01632 is the Scene ID # for Girl stumbles through wardrobe and into magical land, from The Chronicles of Narnia).

  • Other Tips

    ScreenVue searches are NOT case sensitive. All letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for napoleon dynamite, Napoleon Dynamite, and nApOlEoN dYnAmItE, will all return the same results.

    ScreenVue also ignores common words and characters such as "where" and "how", as well as certain single digits and single letters, because they tend to slow down your search without improving the results.
