  • 1. Developing your Story<br />Due: Tuesday September 29, 2009<br />As a group you are to write:<br />
    • A concept statement
    • 2. Story Outline
    • 3. Treatment
    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.
