In this second stage of the design cycle, I have to create storyboards for my
video. I have to create more than one of it because I then have to choose
the best one and evaluate it against the design specification. The storyboards
have to be very detailed; for example, there can be included if there’s a
close up, if there’s a song, how many seconds or minutes does the clip last
I particularly like this storyboard because it is very professional looking and I
like the story that I created which is very suitable with our age group.
Even though this storyboard is very short, I like the main idea of the person
getting dialysis whilst the doctor explains the technology. However, it isn’t very
I like very much this storyboard because it is based in school; hence it is
suitable for our age group. I also like that the teacher is explaining the
technology to the kids.
This storyboard is nice but I know that I won’t choose this because there are
difficult scenes to film that would be impossible to do, for example there’s a
scene that someone fells and the person goes to the hospital;.
Evaluating my storyboards
I created four different storyboards for the video and I now have to decide
the best one of all four and the best that fits the design specification that I
previously did. All of the storyboards are nice and show similar things but some
lack some features.
After comparing all of the storyboards with the design specification, I think
that only one meets nearly all of the design specification: the first storyboard.
I decided the first storyboard to create because it is the best one out of all
four. It is appropriate for our age because it is discussing the technology
chosen in a way that our age group will understand. Moreover, the facts
written about the technology is clear as stated in the design specification.
Overall, I like this storyboard because I added appropriate music for every
box and I like the close-ups of the character in the video. It really shoes a story
behind the whole technology and I think that people will like it. I also like the
end because I added a box with all of the credits, for example I will credit the
cast, myself and other people. Finally, I think that this storyboard is the most
professional and, if made and edited well, it may seem like a real movie.

This Gantt Chart shows how I will manage my time wisely and how I plan to do
various things when I am creating the final product. This Gantt chart will help
me figure out whether I have enough time for everything and how long
everything will take me. I will try and follow the chart so that I am organized
and try to not exceed anything.
I am creating the step-by-step plan that will help me when I will create my
video. With the help of this plan, I will know exactly what I have to do, the
resources I have to use, the materials that I will need and how much time it
will take me to complete the whole video. Combined with the Gantt chart I
have an incredible action plan to get started.

Which program will I use to edit the footage?
I decided that I want to use the program “IMovie” for apple computers
because it is already inside the computer and because I already know how
to use it.
This is a preview of how the program works and how it looks:
“With an all‑new design, iMovie for Mac lets you enjoy your videos like never before.
Browse your clips more easily, instantly share your favorite moments, and create beautiful
HD movies and Hollywood‑style trailers. And when you’re ready to premiere on all your
devices, iMovie Theater rolls out the red carpet.”
I am now ready to create my video, create the script and find the cast all by
following my storyboard and my specifications.
I am staring my create stage. This stage is the most crucial one because I am
arriving to a closure for all of the project and it is where I am actually creating
the product, in this case a video.
I will follow my Gantt chart and my step-by-step plan to know exactly what I
am going to do and to follow all of the deadlines and the timings.I am starting
by creating the script for the video following my chosen storyboard, which is
the first one.
Creating the script is a very important part of creating the video because it is
essential for the actors and the director. The script won’t only include the
things that the actors will say but also any change in the frame and any
I will have to really think of every little detail but also I have to make sure to
always follow the original storyboard without trying to change anything.
