FROM TREATMENT TO SHOOTING SCRIPT

THIS IS A GROUP TASK

Shooting Script Guide: A treatment should describe the story and its various elements. Once the final research has been carried out groups will add details preparing basic idea into a plan of how to get  the images and sounds they need to tell their story. This is the shooting script.

The shooting script format is simple. The page is divided into 2 columns titled “picture” and “sound.” Notes on the “picture” side of the column should indicate whether the image in question is archive, original footage, an interview, etc. Further annotations will indicate how it will be shot, where it is to be found etc. The “sound” column will indicate the kinds of things the interviewee is expected to say, the ‘narration’ that will be needed, the audio and so on.
