Tips for using this script template: (Delete everything after this, when using)
There are a few different types of script templates you can use. This particular template is excellent for narration driven videos that are focused on learning, e.g. like a tutorial.
The numbers are helpful for keeping track of each line and for reference purposes. If you need to translate your script into multiple languages, the numbers can also be helpful for keeping each piece of narration connected to the right line.
In the action column, either make notes of what should be happening, or use this space to connect to your storyboard. If you are creating a screen video, you may even want to drop in screenshots of the action.
For the narration column, try to keep each cell to a single sentence at most. This will make it easier for the narrator to read. It also helps with translation, and editing. If you are using a narrative style, each line should be 1 action, 1 shot, or 1 character’s dialog.
If you need more lines, add them. Or if you want to have translations in this document, add another column for the translated version of the script.
