Basics: Writing and Using Scripts
An early step in the video creation process is writing your script. Here’s a look at why you should use a script, an overview of script types, what’s needed in a script, and some tips for better script writing.
When you first set out to make a video, it’s tempting to just jump in and begin recording. Writing a script keeps you on track, helps prevent ums and ahs, ensures you don’t forget a key step, and saves you time. Included at the end of the course are two script templates (downloadable) to help get you started on writing your own.
