Video Script Tips

Got a great video idea but need help with your script?

 

Here at Crowdfunder we want to help our crowdfunders as much as we possibly can, we have already given you tips on how to make a perfect video (http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/blog/2013/02/18/video-tips/) and now we are going to be extra nice and give you our top tips on what makes a perfect script.

You don’t have to be Quentin Tarantino to make a short video nowadays, a good script and a carefully crafted storyboard are all you need to be on your way. Videos are key to bringing a project to life and allowing you to show your backers who you are and why your project is so important.

The content of your video is more important than how professional it looks. Saying that, if you can make it look good too then that’s an added bonus! What’s key to note is that project videos don’t need to be long at all. Read below to see what we think makes a perfect script:
