Documentary Scriptwriting Template + Video Tutorial - Based on Daniel Raim's award-winning documentary HAROLD AND LILLIAN: A HOLLYWOOD LOVE STORY (Zeitgeist Films 2017).
Raim provides a step by step tutorial on how to properly format your script using professional, industry-standard scriptwriting practices.
In addition, the video tutorial includes a split screen showing the documentary side by side with the script to illustrate key scriptwriting and formatting concepts.
This template is ideal for those working in the Final Draft Scriptwriting software, and it can also easily be used in Microsoft Word. It's important to note that the concepts taught in this course can be applied to a script in any text-based editor.
This scriptwriting template and mini-course are a culmination of 20+ years of filmmaking experience including production of three widely acclaimed documentaries including the Oscar-nominated documentary short THE MAN ON LINCOLN'S NOSE.
PLEASE NOTE: The Documentary Scriptwriting Template is included in Daniel Raim's Documentary Storytelling & Scriptwriting Masterclass. So if you decide to upgrade to the masterclass, we will deduct the cost of this template course ($47) from the masterclass. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
