A Slugline, also known as a Sub-header, is used when you want to bring attention to  an important element within a scene such as a shot, cutaway, or montage. Formatting-wise, they should always appear on their own line and in ALL CAPS. You can format these as "General" via StudioBinder's screenwriting toolbar.

Just beware of overuse as this can become distracting to the reader. Watch the video below for some proper formatting examples! 👇

Point of View Shots

Use sub-headers when you want to convey what a character sees in a POV shot. It would be formatted a a General via StudioBinder's toolbar above the script. You'd start with the person's POV (i.e. RICK'S POV), followed by a dash and then what they are looking at ( - DEALER'S HANDS). 

Follow it with a brief description of what is seen, and conclude the POV shot by writing the sub-header BACK TO SCENE.

Like this:

RICK'S POV - DEALER'S HANDS
The dealer deals the cards. Slyly, he deals a card from the bottom of the deck
BACK TO SCENE

Insert Shots

An insert starts with what a character might be reading or seeing. (i.e. INSERT - NEWSPAPER HEADLINE). Followed by what the headline says enclosed in quotes ( "IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!"). Conclude with BACK TO SCENE. 

Like this:

INSERT - NEWSPAPER HEADLINE
"IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!"
BACK TO SCENE
