3 Planning the Commercial
sound effects Sound has to fit with both sight and motion Audio should interpret and advance the visual Limit and time number of scenes Communicate thought in short smooth time Keep most shots detailed Act out the script, don’t just read it Make sure brand name is prominent If you demonstrate a sale feature, you talk about the sales feature Audio needs to be relevant but not describe the obvious

4 Planning the Commercial
The use of Supers can enhance the sale Generally try to communicate one basic idea Read audio aloud before to catch tongue twisters Use everyday words and simple sentences Write the video description as detailed as possible Enlarging single words to aid the sale Basic idea- state it, support it, demonstrate it, repeat promise at the end

5 Writing the Script Use easy to pronounce and remember words
30 ad only has 28 sec of audio Write friendly and conversational Write script next to video scene and music descriptions copywriting- flowers

6 Developing the Storyboard

Sequence- order of shots Shot description- describe what can’t be said in the sketch Transition in and out- change to from and to next scene Video image- whether its title or movement or interview etc. Audio recorded- sound that is recorded during shot Added audio- audio planned to be put in during editing including music or narration Transition out Estimated time Any specifics that need to be said or known
