    A lot of things come under consideration when we talk about the web content of any company or business. It can be quite hard to decide which one is better and which one is worse, as both of the type have their own unique features. However, some ghostwriting company told us that even video creation needs the written content for its script. If the video is just based on music and action, it will not need any text. However, they claimed that many video makers ask them to create good scripts for their videos. Considering the fact, we can say that text content is more important than videos as the videos also usually rely on textual scripts. Have you ever seen a movie with story or dialogues?

    Well, as far as I know, a video script is a chronological run-down of every part of a video, meaning shots, scenes, musical/other effects, actions and dialogues. So yes, you can have a video without dialogues but still need a script for everything else in that video, and for the shooting itself.

    I’m not sure what we are talking about here, though. Is it just a comparison? Well, they are really different, so I don’t know where to start from. For example, a video is made by different communication tools (visual, auditory, textual and probably something I don’t know about), while a text is just made by words. And then, think about a song. A singer usually puts some music on the backing, even though the text could be enough. And what about when they make a video to complete it? In that case the video helps the text, and not viceversa. I don’t think one is better than the other.

    “Have you ever seen a movie with story or dialogues?” Do you mean *without, right? If it is the case, I’ve seen movies without dialogues. Not sure movies without story exist, though.
