STORY TREATMENT WRITING/REVISION – Many confuse the difference between a treatment and a synopsis. A treatment can be two different things.
- First, a sales tool when there is no complete script and you want to raise the money to write the script. You show the treatment around to people who may be interested in the story.
- Second, as a writing tool, a treatment is the step between the idea and the step outline so you can know the beginning, middle, and end of your story before you invest your time in further development.
A producer who has optioned or purchased your completed spec script can request a treatment if you go into a development process with him.. A treatment can be anywhere between 3 to 50 pages depending upon the amount of detail you include.
SCRIPT SYNOPSIS WRITING/REVISION – a synopsis is a tool for selling your completed script. Whereas a treatment is the complete story showing your well-wrought surprise ending, a synopsis can tease while it gives a brief sketch of your story, characters, and tone. It is usually only 1 or 2 pages in length.
