Picture of storyboard example

A storyboard is an outlined visual plan for a scene in a film. Whether it is a short film or a full length feature film, creating a storyboard allows everyone involved to visualize every scene during the preproduction process. A storyboard provides many benefits, but perhaps the most important thing it provides is organization. Working on a storyboard will allow you to sequence your scenes and plan accordingly for filming. It will also help maintain a vision when production has ended and you begin to post-production editing.

Beginning your project by creating a storyboard also helps you develop a vision for your film. Doing so will help focus on individual scene details like intended emotion, camera angles/movement/shot size, and scene context. Spending time on storyboards will allow you to maximize your time on-set since you will have an efficient plan for producing each shot.

A script, sometimes called a screenplay, is the written text of a movie, play, or show. It is a blueprint for everything seen or heard on screen, including characters, setting, dialogue, and action. The elements of a screenplay are written in a specific format to keep production on time and on budget.

Video Production

Video production is the process of creating a video from idea to completion. It is generally divided into three phases: pre-production, production, and post-production. The pre-production phase includes planning, researching, budgeting, creating a timeline, storyboarding, and script writing. Once the planning is finished, the production phase includes the recording of the video. The post-production phase is the editing of the video.

Produce a Podcast

A podcast is like a radio program but in a digital format that can be downloaded from the Internet. Podcasts can range from scripted shows to improvised recordings. Like video production, podcasting begins with an idea for a show's content, but it is heavily reliant upon good quality audio. Investing in a sensitive microphone and the right software is a must.
