11th Grade NMA - Beat Sheets

Period 2

This Wednesday, November 9th, your documentary trailer outline or "beat sheet" is due.

Documentary Beat Sheet Considerations
  • Who will you interview?
  • What questions will be asked?
  • What stylistic visual elements will be used? (color, composition, title design)
  • Is there a single connecting element? (interviews, narration, title cards)
  • What type(s) of music will be used?
  • How will the story be divided into three acts?
  • Other than interviews, what specific elements will be collected?

For reference, take a look at this blog entry from writer John August:
WTF is a beat sheet?
