English term or phrase: Narrative treatment
Hallo, an alle Regisseure:
Treatment ist klar, das bleibt so (~vorlaeufiges Drehbuch), aber was mache ich mit "narrative"? Gibt es in dem Zusammenhang einen festen Begriff?

Danke im voraus!

German translation:Filmtext
Explanation:
Tillmann, Fachwörterbuch Hörfunk und Fernsehen gives Filmtext for narrative. I figure Videotext might also work. There are also some interesting websites that might help, start with movieline.de or check Frank Dietz's website.

Handlung


Explanation:
In einem Drehbuch glaube ich doch eher, daß die Handlung gemeint ist. Narrative bedeutet sonst " Erzählung", also der allgemeine Ablauf der Dinge. Das Wort action kann man ja nicht mehr verwenden, das ist ja schon vergeben, also sind sie wohl auf narrative ausgewichen.

vorläufiges Drehbuch in Erzählform d.h. ohne Dialoge


Explanation:
narrative treatments werden manchmal verlangt, wenn eine Produktionsgesellschaft sich einfach einmal über die Handlung informieren möchte, ohne ein ganzes Drehbuch zu sehen.
