What’s in a storyboard? Today we are going to explore the components needed to create a storyboard for our Inventors TV show. Our aims for today are to Identify the main components of a storyboard Tell the difference between a long shot, medium shot and a close up Become familiar with the terms frame, shot, zoom, cut, angle Create our own storyboard
What is a storyboard? A storyboard is like a script but with pictures. The storyboard is used by the director, camera operator and anyone involved with the making of a visual production. It is the most important part of the making of a video, television show or film. All involved look at the storyboard to know what they are to capture on film. The crew recreates the storyboard as closely as possible.
A storyboard cell has these 4 elements SHOT TYPE CAMERA MOVEMENT DESCRIPTION OF ACTION AND DIALOGUE IMAGE
The storyboard image The image shows what the camera is to shoot. This is called a shot or frame
Storyboard to camera CU STILL Justin staring directly at camera, tilted head Bored expression Shot type Camera move
Close Up (CU) A close up (CU) is exactly what you think it is. Close The face and part of the neck and shoulders are seen.
Medium shot (MS) A medium shot (MS) shows the person’s face and body but not their legs
Long shot (LS) A long shot (LS) shows the whole person or object in relation to their surroundings
Extreme Close Up (XCU) An extreme close up (XCU) is extremely close The face is not shown in full only certain features are in frame
Two shot, Three shot, Four shot A two shot means there are two people in the frame/shot Therefore a three shot means three people, four shot four people Very rarely will you see more than five people in a single tv/film shot because often the camera will not fit them all in.
Point of View A point of view shot is simply someone or something’s point of view, the camera often shakes and moves rapidly POV Tracking forward Camera moves forward shakily, towards open door heavy breathing can be heard, shot is blurry
