How to Create a Compelling Script for a YouTube Video

You probably think that in order to look natural in a video, you need to speak from memory and be spontaneous. But the reality is that in order to look confident and natural in front of the camera, you almost always need a good script and the ability to read it as if you were talking on the fly.

The main part - writing a great script - relies on basic storytelling techniques.

Regardless of the type of script, you can rely on the typical three-act structure. It breaks down as follows:

Act 1: Beginning. This is where you introduce the viewer into the situation, presenting the problem they will face.

Act 2: Development. In this act, you build up the tension, making the problem more acute.

Act 3: Decision. The final part proposes a solution that resolves the problem presented at the beginning.

This structure fits almost any type of script, from tutorials to vlogs.
Reading the script in front of the camera is where you can win over your audience!
Once the script is written, you need to act naturally in front of the camera. But remembering all the text is not the easiest task! You don't want to appear as if you're reading text, which could make you appear inauthentic.

In fact, you don't need to memorize the entire script. You just need to know the "skeleton" of your script:

What problem is being discussed?
How do you formulate this problem?
What steps are being taken to resolve it?
What is the final call to action?
Knowing these key points will make reading a script more natural and making the video editing process easier.
