Video production can happen at the pre-production phrase before any of actually videoing takes place. And one of the most crucial steps on visualising production is in the story-boarding phase.

The main things in story-boarding is short types and names how to convey movement din some objects and your camera – have a simple way to draw out your subject’s and their spaces.

A lot of people have trouble drawing their story boards which is fine and luckily they are number of programs out there that design people use pre-set images and settings to compose panels easily on your computer and your iPad. Alternatively, you can take still photos as well of your frames.

Movement is then shown on your frames without arrows. Now make sure to distinguish arrows for your subject and for your movement.  For example, you can make them small arrows for subjects and bigger for camera. Or you can write their designation next to them.

Now you need to make sure to name and number – briefly describe your panels. To do this you need to determine the short sides of your frames you’ve drawn and write down the action taking place in the shot.

Lastly, number your shots in the order of your story board.

I hope this has been helpful and we’ll catch you again here on DeliBytes!
