…In this chapter, we'll be looking at how…to format the two main types of video scripts.…Let's take a look at them.…The two column script is the one that most…people are familiar with, because it's been around for decades.…The main thing here is that the video is…on one side, the audio is on the other side.…Typically, it's the video on the left, audio on the right,…although there are no hard and fast rules that that's the arrangement.…The main thing is that if we see it on the screen, it goes in the video column.…If we hear it, it goes in the audio column.…
The video script format starts as the screenplay format.…Screenplay format is great for writing movies, but it falls short…a little bit of the needs for an informational video script.…The most significant addition to the screenplay format to make it a video…script, is the addition of the voice over column.…The main thing about this format is that we see it…first on the page, and then we hear it on the page.…And we'll be using both of these formats throughout the rest of this course.…
