Header for Scripting


Documents are created in order to communicate what will happen in the production. The documents explain the five W's and H of the video:

  • What is being created?
  • Who is creating it?
  • When is it being created?
  • Where is it being created?
  • Why is it being created?
  • How is it being created?

The documents include:

  • An Outline of the Idea and the Story
  • The Script
  • The Treatment
  • A Storyboard

The amount of documents you create will depend on the production. In news, simple outlines and scripts are used because the production needs to get done before the 6 o'clock broadcast. Movies use all of the documents in order to have the production go a smooth as possible.
