I went all the way with my first 2 full lenght scripts, done my rewrites and now.. I wanna do something for my friends! They're messing with my head almost every single day about this, and i finally decided to do it! However, i don't really know how to approach this.
I'm an oldie in Lineage and WoW online games, and i wanna write a short script about my clan's greatest days. I could use a narration type of script for these if i had any videos to go along. But i have not. It's just the stories. It looks so easy to write a novel for example, but i cannot see it happening a short movie afterwards. Let's say that we can find someone to produce it, how would you approach this? a documentary type of interviews is the only way that comes to mind. Any thoughts?

I’ve seen plenty of cases where footage was staged inside the game environment, but recreating epic battles and the like is probably not feasible.

If you want to go the interview and stock footage route (which is tough to keep interesting for anyone not directly involved), you might go with the conceit that the players and avatars get interviewed separately. You’d need some folks who can do the avatars’ voices, would seem cheesy if the players voiced their own avatars. Especially if they have differences of opinion about some events.
