How to Make an Animation Split Script

In this video, we’ll take your script and put it into a split script. Once you download our split script template, you’re looking at three columns. The first column is for words the narrator will be saying. The second column is for the pictures you’ll see while you hear the narration, and the third column is for any notes you have like describing a motion you want to do and how long that picture should be on screen for.

For now, we want to write each new thought of the script on a new picture. Basically, every place you could imagine having another picture, write another line of text.
