Always write scripts in simple present tense.
"Andrew sits in a chair"

Voice overs are on the character line
ANDREW (V.O.)

You get raging arguments over difference between MONTAGE and SERIES OF SHOTS, but they are essentially the same thing, and there are a lot of ways to do it. *You might want to give the series a name
*
SERIES OF SHOTS -- "ANDREW TURNS QUEER"
*
--Andrew sees a cute YOUNG HUSTLER
*
--He follows the Young Hustler into a men's room.
*
--He walks into the bedroom and kicks Julie out of bed.
END SERIES OF SHOTS

If the elements of a series have dialog, you should probably treat them as scenes, but you could truncate the slugs.

ANDREW FLIPS OUT SEQUENCE

BEDROOM

This should be interesting.
*
LIVING ROOM
Andrew runs around naked, barking like a dog.
JULIE
Andy, what is wrong with you?
ANDREW
Woof. woof, woof.

etc.
