I’ve never written a shooting script for a documentary before so decided I needed to do some research before I started. I looked at scripts for other documentaries online and also came across this great e-book by director and screenplay writer Trisha Das:
I am really interested to see how our pre-shooting script will differ from our post-shoot script.
Below I have made a short visual storyboard of our script to show the colours of our documentary and the style of shoot we have in mind. Our film will start bright and go into slight shadow as Sarah discusses her struggles. It then comes back to bright colours but eventually fades to black as the light turns out.
