WHAT DO WE NEED TO LABEL THE STORYBOARD ACCURATELY? SHOT TYPE + ANGLE SETTING SOUND – SFX + MUSIC DIALOGUE / VOICE OVER LIGHTING DURATION OF EACH FRAME A TITLE A NUMBER FOR EACH FRAME EDIT INSTRUCTIONS – CUT, WIPE, FADE CAMERA MOVEMENT – PAN, TRACK
Title: Camera shot = Long Shot 1a Camera angle = H Seeng = Outside in a park Camera Sound/SFX = Theme music, birds singing movement TILT DOWN Dialogue/VO = LighNng = Bright outdoor DuraNon = 3 seconds 1b Can you add the appropriate labels for shot 2? 2 Camera shot = ______________________ Camera angle = ________________________ Seeng = ______________________________ Sound/SFX = __________________________ Dialogue/VO = _________________________ LighNng = _____________________________ DuraNon = ____________________________
