Instead of having a script, it would be helpful to make an outline. As you research and find information, figure out what it is you want to show and tell your audience. Not knowing what kind of documentary you’re making its hard to give specifics… but as you get interviews, etc. Try to envision what you want your documentary to look like and what you want it to say. Then ask the questions, and get the shots to make it happen.
