At the heart of any great video is an awesome story.But how to tell it? This Discussion Panel and Q & A will wax philosophical about script writing ingredients and strategies.

BCPVA monthly meetings are a forum for members and guests to learn, share, and network with video industry professionals. Typical meetings can include presentations by experts in technology, shooting, editing, storytelling & imagery, and business management. New Professional members often show examples of their video productions followed by Q&A and open topic discussions. Frequently our Vendor Members bring the latest technology like cameras, lights, and gear to our meetings so you can try them out.

The point of BCPVA meetings is to help our members be the best videographers they can be!

      @Kevin No, I mean whatever video I am working on, I always want it to lead somewhere. Something has to change from the beginning to the end. Even in corporate work, I still need that arc. For me, figuring the end of that arc is always the ticket!

    Endings. Always want to have a nice punch at the end. Like Pixar says, find your ending first and then work from there.­

    So what's your biggest challenge when it comes to writing scripts for videos ? I struggle with using humour appropriately. I'd love to write funnier videos!
