    Okay, so minimal description of the locations. But that minimal is necessary to the plot at some point.
    Not your call. Writing a script is not anything at all like writing a story. You literally provide the words and practically nothing else. A movie or a TV show or even a play is a collaborative effort - there is a director, actors, set designers, casting directors and a writer. The first and most important lesson to learn is that you have your job, which is to write words for actors to speak, everything else is someone else's job.

    Look at this script:

    Location is given as 'bookstore' but there is no description of it. The actress's age is given but no description. There is no idea of what they are wearing, what the location looks like, nothing. Just the absolute bare minimum to create the framework for everyone else to build on.

    This is a page from Lily Collins actual script for 'The Mortal Instruments'. Take note of where she has crossed out the writer's idea of how her character should feel. (so basically don't do it - you are wasting your time). Note that there are no camera shots or filming directions (those go on the shooting script which is a separate beast and made up by the director and DP (Director of Photography). It is basically words and a few very basic essential directions and nothing else. That is what you write.
