Film Update

We’re almost done with the script writing process!  We finished a full draft of the documentary script today, and hope to begin editing by early next week at the latest.  While scripts are mostly associated with fictional films, where each character’s lines and actions are written out, in a documentary, we write out each individual interview and then piece together different parts of those interviews to form a cohesive story.  Here’s a shot of our current script writing setup, with different excerpts from the full interview transcriptions posted on the board and arranged based on speaker and topic.  Its a tedious process, but in the end it will assure that the film’s dialogue is cohesive and engaging.
