Developing your story

  1. 1. Developing your Story<br />Due: Tuesday September 29, 2009<br />As a group you are to write:<br /><ul><li>A concept statement
  2. 2. Story Outline
  3. 3. Treatment</li></ul>A Concept Statement?<br />This states the facts of the production. Who are the characters? What are the locations? What is the situation?<br />Story Outline<br />Here you need to break the story up into sections. If you’re doing a music video, chances are your story maybe broken up. But you should still have: <br />Thesis: Set up of the story <br />Antithesis: Conflict that arises in the story<br />Synthesis: Resolution to the conflict in the story<br />What is a Story Treatment?<br />A treatment, which may range from one to several dozen pages, is the snapshot of the writer’s short film, feature film, music video, or TV script. A treatment reveals the story’s structure, introduces characters and hooks, and is often the writer’s first and only opportunity to pitch his or her project.<br />* Use the samples that follow as a format guide *<br />
