Kick start the creative process

This template is designed to kick-start the creative process and help you get down your initial ideas for concept, script and content for your animation or video.
Blank Script Outline Template
Example Script Outline
This template is designed to kick-start the creative process and help you get down your initial ideas for concept, script and content for your animation or video.
The download is a Zip file, containing two word documents. One is a blank script template for you to fill in and the other is an example of a filled in script template. Your's might be very different to our example, but it provides a good reference for how to use the template.
Remember, your script outline is not meant to be a perfect script with final voice over. Bullet points work just fine. Just do as much as you can. We can help you work out the details of voice-script, tone and visuals, and answer any questions you’re unsure of.
Go fast! Don’t get too bogged down in details at the start. Then iterate to fine-tune and fill in gaps. Allow 10-30 minutes, but take longer if you need.
Keep your communication objectives in mind when thinking about the structure. What are the outcome focused goals for the video?
And remember – this script outline is just a starting point, so jot down everything else that comes to mind and skip anything that doesn’t apply to you. And have fun :)
If you get stuck or have questions, just send us a message or call us on +61 (0)2 8007 5470. We’re here to help :)

"Redboat helped us to create an online animation for interested parties to lean about Marine Zoning. We had a short turnaround time and very specific requirements, which did change at our end during the course of the project. The team at Redboat were wonderful. They offered suggestions to improve the process along the way, never seemed phased by last minute changes and were generally a pleasure to work with. We were thrilled with the end product. I’d highly recommend their services. "

Vivienne Sykes, Brand and Content Manager - Parks Australia
Department of the Environment and Energy

"We used Redboat to tell a complex story in a short animation. We were completely happy both with the result – it make quite an impact at the time and is still being used successfully – and with the professional way in which Adrian interacted with the team in developing and fine-tuning the brief. I enthusiastically recommend his work generally and have done to others who might be looking for similar services."

Mike Grundy, Research Director - CSIRO
