Script vs. Storyboard Script: Written text of a screenplay or performance Storyboard: Panel involving sketches of important action in scenes in a series of shots
Why Storyboard? Helps in brainstorming ideas Helps visualize what finished product will look like Helps you use time and resources wisely when filming Makes it easier to edit down the line Keeps everyone on the same page during filming Helps avoid missed opportunities
What to Include Approximate time for each scene Movement/transition from one scene to the next Camera angles Special effects And remember to number each page and each frame!
Important Notes Doesn’t have to be perfect (shapes, stick figures, are okay) Should be done in pencil Every scene should contribute to the film; if it doesn’t, cut it out Depict major scenes (not every single detail)
Scene Selection—Think About Audience Message of video Method of delivery ◦Who will appear ◦Camera angles/movement ◦Frame size ◦Special lighting ◦Transitions ◦Music/sound effects ◦Special effects
