How to write a video script

Perhaps writing a video script seems like a really complicated process to you. So much so that you’ve never actually tried. For me that feeling used to come up when I heard the word algebra, I had no idea what it was, when I thought of it, nothing came to mind, there was no reference, it was just a black hole in my mind…

However, due to the current home schooling arrangements, I’ve had to learn algebra and you know what, it’s just maths! (And not hard which I bet you already knew).

And writing a video script could be like that for you. If you get some good pointers you’ll be off and running, or writing in this case. It’s not a great mystery. You don’t need a literary degree or any professional copywriting skills. You just need the ability to work through the process.
