4. Script writing



The form of the script will depend on the function of the video. 

It is advisable to run through this process with the active participation of the practitioners (if you yourself are not one), or at least discuss the proposed script with them. It will avoid misunderstandings and project delays further down the line.


Script writing will ideally start after the first field visit. 

The information from the field visit will dictate what is possible and what is not. This way, you can make a script that is executable and tailored to your specific situation.  

Prepare your interview questions in advance and write them down in a list.
