Writing a manuscript for a serie
Write a manuscript in Final Draft based on a synopsis for a genre and with a theme.
The script should include majority of scenes, actors and locations before pre-productions begins.
The script numbering must be locked when production starts, as it's not possible to change scene numbering after production starts.
Day planning also requirers the scene numbering to be locked down. However, there is a possibility to add scenes and shots at a later stage if needed, using exception handling.
