example of a storyboard

To help you organize your video’s process you can use a storyboard. A storyboard is a series of sketches – like a comic book – that help visualizing your film. It shows different elements of your story:

  • your timeline, the way you are going to tell the story from beginning to end.
  • your location(s), how you are going to show and frame your background.
  • your character(s), the way they are in the frame and how they are going to look.
