The script is a necessary and fundamental tool to carry out documentary audiovisual work. For developing it, a series of knowledge is necessary, which provides the basis for the development and application of the ideas under investigation or simple exposition.
The documentary, as a story that proceeds through various realities, requires the narrative management, its structure and the components that articulate it, such as the characters, the narrator or the scenarios in which they carry out their actions. The documentation process prior to filming is one of the keys, but so is the writing and organization of the information.
From the script module, students will dive into that knowledge base, from its Aristotelian classicism to the most innovative current forms. They will also discover how to transfer it to a role, from the genesis of the idea, through the synopsis and description of the characters to completing the so-called treatment.
The objective of the documentary script writing workshop is that the theoretical knowledge is accompanied by a practical implementation. In this way, students will acquire the necessary learning skills to design and produce transmedia audiovisual content, as well as the skills to properly build the different phases of the script.
