Last week we started working on our video spiritual ethical will project. This week we will be talking about the second step in this project, writing your script. To complete this step you will need mementos, journals, dairies and anything else you can think of to help you remember important events in your life.
After you have gathered all of your resource, you will want to read through or watch you materials to get ideas for your script. Next you will want to establish how long you want your video ethical will to be. For example, you can make a short film that lasts about 15 minutes, or you can go all out and create a feature length film. Keep in mind that you can always add on to your film later.
Next you will want to use the normal steps listed on the how to write an ethical will page to create your script outline. You can select any elements that you want for your ethical will. You also have the option of freestyling your presentation if you want to. In this case you would forgo the script.
From your outline you will want to start writing your script. To help with timing, layout out pictures and video clips that you plan on using for the visual elements of your vide ethical will and write captions for each. Keep in mind, that if you use the standard screenplay format, that one page of text will equal about one minute of film time.
Do you have questions or recommendations for this project? Post them below.
