In this activity, you will read an excerpt of a script and decide on how it should be shot by indicating shot types directly on the script and completing a shot list document.
Why are we doing this?
The first stage of making most videos is to write a script. Once written, you need to decide how to shoot the script, and that means you need to decide what shots your going to use for each second of the script.
Learning objectives: By the end of this civility, you will be able to:
You can use either the script excerpt from Stand By Me or this script excerpt from Back to the Future. Read the script and visualize what different shots will be used for each part of the script. In the actual movie clip for the script, there are over 40 shots! Try to identify at least 15 (20 for an outstanding! See rubric above).
Using a printout of the script or a pdf copy, annotate (i.e., make notes on) the script indicating what shots should be used for each part of the script.
Using one of the Shot List Templates linked below, create a shot list for your script. This is the document you would follow if you were to actually film this script.
Turn your shot list document into Google Classroom.
