Using The Script Section

Every great video starts with a great script. In fact, creating a script that is well written, compelling, and grammatically correct is the most important step in the process. It’s the foundation with which the audio and visuals in your video are built upon, and needs to be both engaging and concise to impress your viewers.

Script/Article

This is where you put your script/article. You can either copy and paste an existing article/script you have from elsewhere, or you can type your script/article right there in the box. As mentioned earlier, it is vitally important that your script up to scratch. Here’s a quick checklist of things to make sure of after you have created your script.

  • Is the script free from grammatical and punctuation errors?
  • Is the script free from spelling errors?
  • Have I said everything I want to say in my script?

Whilst you can come back and edit the script at anytime, doing things right the first time around will make the process that much easier for you, and save you from possibly having to re-record sections of your script later on.
