Format: Mass Market Paperback
There are hundreds of books about writing screenplays, but few designed for non-fiction video production. Hampe hits the mark with this book designed for writers and producers of information videos.
He covers research, treatments, script styles and the business of scriptwriting, as the title suggests. Inside are several different script examples, a production glossary and such tips as thinking in pictures and writing for the spoken word.
This is a definitive reference book for corporate and instructional script writers--concise and to the point. The only downsides are that it doesn't address writing for the documentary; it is more "commercial" oriented. It also is skimpy about computer programs for scriptwriting. Other than that, this is the book to get whether you are writing a corporate training video, a travel video, a TV commercial or any special interest film.

The topic is exactly what I wanted but this book is seriously out of date. For example the author mentioned how hard it is to find a real typewriter now...
