    A Treatment is a short (3-30 page) summary of the scripts contents.

    A Treatment comes in real handy when writing a script, but personally, I tend to write them after the fact. But you will be expected to have one (especially in TV).

    Here's a free treatment generator that I absolutely love. You can buy essentially the same thing for $100.

    And here's a beat sheet calculator: http://www.berezinfilm.com/2010/12/18/blake-snyder-beat-sheet-calculator/

    All this stuff is pretty self-explanatory, and what with writers being smarter than everyone else...

    But feel free to ask questions, and we'll get into it further, but we got to start somewhere, so take a look.
