Audiovisual Script Writing.
Parker, Norton S.
In audiovisual writing the writer must first learn to think in terms of moving visual presentation. The writer must research his script, organize it, and adapt it to a limited running time. By use of a pleasant-sounding narrator and well-written narration, the visual and narrative can be successfully integrated. There are two types of script format: The Hollywood or One-Column format in which narration and filming instructions are interwoven in one column, and the Two-Column format in which directions are written on one side of the script and narration and dialogue on the other. Camera angles, optical effects, and background atmosphere come primarily through experience. The training film relies on voice-over narration or an on-camera narrator to carry the audio, this being the easiest and most convenient type of presentation. The stock film documentary is a film made from already shot footage obtained from newsreels, commercial film, and various film libraries and archives. The concepts studied are analyzed through use of the case study method. A glossary is included. (RP)
