Provides chance to discuss and receive feedback
What characters are in the frame, how are they moving?
What are the characters saying to each other, if anything?
How much time has passed between the last frame and the current?
Where the “camera” is in the scene. (far away, close up, moving)
The approximate time for each scene
Movement or transition from one scene to another
Any special camera angles
Any special effects
A storyboard is not the final product (it does NOT have to be perfect! Just get the point across)
A storyboard should always be done in pencil (so you can edit and erase)
Each scene in the storyboard should contribute to the overall purpose of the video
Storyboards depict major scenes, not a frame by frame reenactment of the entire video
Consider who the audience is, what is being communicated to the audience?
What is the message/purpose of the video?
