How effective was it in its goal?<br />Share your commercial with the person next to you and be prepared to share with the class<br />
Parts of a Treatment<br />A treatment is what you present to a client to let them know what your vision of a particular commercial is. Richter in “The 30-second Storyteller” lists the different parts of a treatment<br />Title Page<br />Concept – How the commercial or the story will help or affect the brand<br />Story – A written description of the plot of the story<br />The Look – What you want the commercial to look like. Here you can place a few screenshots of different films or show video clips that would help the client visualize what the commercial will look like<br />The Sounds – Any music that you think would go along with the commercial<br />Casting – What should these characters be like. Evoke the name of specific actors and actresses to help the client understand your vision of the cast.<br />
