Writing an episode can be very difficult sometimes. For some people it’s hard to concentrate and be focused on the script all the time. I found a way to keep my mind on the script and now I can finish an episode way faster. That’s why I decided to share my steps for easier writing in the script. I hope they will help you the way they helped me.
So the first step is to make an outline of the whole episode in your notebook. There are many ways to do so but here is mine:
* In the beginning I make an In this episode section. In it I write the most important things I want to add in this episode
* For the dialogs I write the character’s name in capital letters like this JENNY- Example
For the actions I do it like this: (Jenny goes to her bedroom and locks the door).
That’s pretty much about the outline.
It will look something like this:
The second step is to write the dialogues, exit/ enter/ stand commands in the script. For the more complicated commands like spot directing use the # notes.
Step three: fix all the # notes/ replace them with the commands
Step four: spot direct and branch
Step five: add and animate overlays
Step six: add animations
Step seven: add sound, text effects, filters etc
Step eight: spot direct the speech bubbles
Step nine: add zooms
Step ten: preview and edit the errors and mistakes (if you have any)
And then is the easiest part- Publish!
