Join Rick Allen Lippert for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Word to create an informational video script template, part of Video Script Writing.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'm going to create…an informational video script template…by modifying the screenplay template in Microsoft Word.…But when you look in the Template Chooser,…you won't find Screenplay, so let's search for one.…Click in the Search Templates field and type screenplay,…and one appears, double-click it.…It downloads from the Internet, and here it is,…and I must tell you, I think this is…a rather lacking screenplay template,…but what it does have are the styles that we need,…so click on the Styles pane and this reveals…all of the styles that we need to use.…
So let's take advantage of those.…Highlight the title, I'm on a Mac,…so I'm pressing Command + A to select everything…in the file, and then I'm pressing the big Delete key,…so now I have a blank document, a clean slate,…and I can start fresh.…I think you need to have a header,…so double-click up in the header area…and let's put in some of the information…that would go on a title page, like the title,…the draft number,…the date,…and because I'm a writer, I like to see my name…
