What’s A Shooting Script and How Do You Create One?
Congratulations, it’s time to roll camera, but not so fast, first you need a shooting script ready. But what’s a shooting script?
A shooting script is the version of a screenplay used during the production of a motion picture or a television show. Shooting scripts are different from spec screenplays. They incorporate scene numbers and follow a well-defined set of procedures that specify how revisions to the screenplay are implemented and circulated among cast and crew.
The shooting script is usually created by the director and cinematographer. But on smaller productions or television shows the screenwriter might be involved as well, especially if they are generating new pages during production.
