Why filmmakers should use a transcription service

Most filmmakers – especially independent ones – spend months or even years writing out the scripts and details of their film.

This is a painstaking process that hopefully results in a beautiful piece of cinematic art.

Filmmaking requires a lot of long nights at the keyboard conceptualizing stories and writing down ideas and notes for plot points.

This whole process can be made easier through the help of transcription services.

  1. Log and categorize notes

    Filmmakers and screenplay writers will obsessively take notes.

    They can take notes of thoughts, ideas, concepts, and questions they have about their film and which pops up into their head at any point during the day.

    These notes and ideas can get jumbled and lost if not organized easily.

    Transcription services allow filmmakers to simply record their ideas on their phone or mobile device, and let the service transcribe them into text files in an instant.

    These can then be categorized based in whichever way the user finds most beneficiary – and that makes it a simple task to take notes anywhere and everywhere a creative pops up.

  2. Search and review timestamps

    To create a perfectly cohesive story, you have to make sure there are no continuity issues.

    This can be a pain when you are forced to sift through hours and hours of film and screenplay documents.

    By having the audio of each scene transcribed as-is, filmmakers can review and timestamp certain points of importance to reference later on.

    This will also allow them to easily recall information and dialogues from earlier scenes in the blink of an eye.

  3. Preserve records

    Sometimes the final product of a film will deviate a bit from the script itself.

    Actors can often adlib or work ‘off-the-cuff’ in a way that changes the script but makes the scene new and fun.

    This is okay!

    However, some filmmakers might want an actual word-for-word transcription of their film for future reference when writing sequels or continuing storylines.

    This can keep any mistakes from slipping through when using only the old script as reference material.
