Referring to the script during edit session for Doers of the Word



Writing for video is different than writing for print.


The words support the pictures. And that means less is more, especially when it comes to narration.


Prose written for films should be like poetry, best when read aloud. The grammatical rules, whilst important, are secondary to rhythm and simplicity.


An example of my writing for video:


Outpourings of Love


Video for the national headquarters of the Episcopal Church (Emmy nominated)


Living God's Praise


Fundraising video for the Episcopal Diocese of Southwestern Virginia.


Doers of the Word


Hands-on work helping others.


The Painful Shoulder


Continuing Medical Education training video.
