The Importance of Video Production Storyboarding

O objective Strategy | Creative | Digital The Importance of Video Production Storyboarding Storyboarding is a crucial step in the process of delivering a successful video project. In this infographic we give top tips on how to create a professional video production storyboard. » Mark it up You must first read your script in detail, break it down and mark it up. Breaking down your video script into key elements will shape the vision of your project, whether that's a movie, video or commercial visualisation. » Size your frame aspect ratio Choosing an aspect ratio for your storyboarding frames determines the size and shape of your camera. The most common aspect ratios include 16:9 (TV and online video format), 1:1 (Instagram and Facebook format) and 3:2 (35mm digital SLR format). » Draw your main subject When you have established your frames, you will need to draw in your subject. Whether you use a pencil and paper or a storyboard generation software app, the subject is the main focus. The less important details can be left rough and sketchy. 'Scamping' is a term used for storyboarding at its most basic, simplified and unpolished form. » Immerse your subject Once you have placed your subject in the frame, you will need to establish some background context. Your background could range from simple lines to complex layers and scenery, depending on how much detail is required. » Make a move Arrows are essential for indicating motion in your frame. They save time on what could take many frames to show movement. You can use arrows to make your subject move left, right, up or down. » Demonstrate your camera actions Camera movements show how we will see the action of a video. Birds eye view, close ups and wide shots are the detailed examples of camera movements that matter in your storyboard. » Number your shots 01 It is important to number all of your frame shots. Labelling with numbers is really useful for referencing specific shots and 02 03 avoids confusion between collaborators. Filming a professional video not only requires specialist tools and equipment, but also extensive knowledge, experience and expertise.
