The Nonbroadcast Television Writer's Handbook will help both veteran writers and those new to video or to nonbroadcast television to create effective scripts. The book presents straightforward, practical advice on all aspects of scriptwriting from the basic requirements of television as a medium to the new possibilities in interactive video...
The book covers every aspect of the scriptwriting process from start to finish, answering such questions as:
* who the scriptwriter's audiences are
* how the technology of television affects scriptwriting, from the need to suit material to the TV screen to the impact of video cassettes and discs on nonbroadcast television
* how to prepare for a program with adequate research
* how to organize research into a plan of action that defines the program's audience, objectives and content, and explains how the writer conceives of the program as a viewing experience
* how to use script formats and television production terminology to translate the concept into a shooting script
* how to relate the video and audio portions of the script and how to maximize the effectiveness of both
* what the requirements are for special formats: unscripted or interview programs, dramatizations and interactive video
