Interviews: This will be in the form of vox pops filmed on the street. We will ask someone out of the public, who is (16+) as well as someone we know who wouldn’t mind jus to make sure that we have someone who can take part if no one agrees. Discussions: We would like this to led by a sexual health expert. Otherwise if it is not possible we will need to research some facts and ask within the discussion why the people think that is; for example 47% of teenagers who get pregnant and abort are underage. Then the group can discuss and suggest how this can changed.
Difference in the script of a documentary.
Documentary deals with fact, not fiction . D ocumentaries delve n to a non-fictional world with real events,
Everything seen and heard on screen is grounded in accuracyand has no element of fiction.
2. Documentaries have no fixed visual and conceptual guidelines per say.
3. At the very heart of documentary, there is an issue and a message at hand. The passing on of this message to the audience is usually the reason that the film was made in the first place.
4. Documentaries must be shot in the real world and show real events happening. Often, the filmmaker is unable to control the event he is shooting as well as the circumstances surrounding the event. It’s difficult to think about lighting when in the middle of a sniper shootout.
