Why Use It?
Well, a storyboard is a graphical
representation of the camera shots you
would use in your film sequence that are
then put together and then connected to
make a ‘narrative flow’.
Why Use It?
The reason why we do this is to give the
director, cameraman, lighting experts etc. an
idea on how the film will look before budgets
are summed up and producers start
How Has It Helped Me?
The creation of this storyboard has really
helped me understand on how certain shot
types and lighting techniques would work in
specific environments as well visualizing
what shots would and wouldn’t work.
Narrative & Star Image
Within our storyboard we then started to
construct costume ideas. We came to the
conclusion that the band member would
wear surgeon outfits. This being rather
alternative and ‘indie’ which relates to the
our band image.
Visualizing Our Video?
I feel that the creating of our storyboard has
really helped us visualize what our video will
look like and it helped us change ideas
within our video making our ideas more
Importance Of Annotating?
I feel putting annotations on our storyboard
was vital as it gives a viewer/reader that
extra bit of information that can’t be
described within the picture that has been
Annotations therefore leads into technical
notes which again are vital as a set
director, the individual setting up the set for
your video, can therefore relate to these
notes and can then prepare for the video.
What Went Well?
I feel that the best part of the process of
storyboarding was getting the timings of
each shots exactly in time to our selected
song which made the finishing it much
What Didn’t Go Well?
I feel that our time management as a group
was pretty poor when attempting to
complete it but also our skill within drawing.
Although drawing isn’t a paramount aspect
within storyboarding our standard of drawing
made it a lot harder.
When our storyboards were finished we as a
group decided to create an animatic, a
digital video of our storyboard cut together
with the music to see if our ideas work or
Successful or Not?
Overall, I feel the animatic was very
successful as they shots we would use look
very good together and feel this was a great
exercise to do as it has really prepared us
for the creation of our video.
