Why Do We Storyboard – Know the reasons!!

There are numerous things that have to be done in the pre-production stage of making a video, one of which is Storyboarding. This process involves making a comic-book like “story sketch” of the film, or part of the film. It can take a long time, but sometimes it is essential to work out the logistics of how a shot/scene will work. It is used more in feature films than in factual videos or documentaries, as it helps mostly with the creative shots working as a pictorial script.

Production company in Los Angeles is creating a story in the video to provide it to the audience. The engagement of the audience is more at the platform with learning about the story and the quality content. The script of the story is interesting and delivers a social message to the viewers.

Storyboarding is an aid used to visualise a film before production. It makes things easier and clearer for the creative team as they can see what shots are going to be needed and work accordingly.

At Videre Video Productions, storyboarding helps us to be more productive on a limited shoot. If we have planned all the shots previously, we know exactly what we want to achieve meaning we don’t waste time, and footage, trying to work it out on location. This also makes it cheaper as we are optimising our time making shoots shorter. We do it also if we are having trouble foreseeing how we want a video to look. Often starting to draw it out and see it in the flesh, other than just in our imagination, can assist us in fixing problems and altering previous ideas that we can now see do not work.

What does a Storyboard look like?

This is one example of Storyboarding. The artist has drawn a few images of frames and then described what the shot includes on the right hand side. The description is supported by the image which saves time on drawing. Sometimes if a sequence is difficult or needs to be explained in greater detail to iron out any problems, the artist will draw more frames per second.

Example two (Taken from a short film ‘Rain’ with Aspectratio productions – This example shows a Storyboard that is not supported by descriptions. The images have arrows to show where the characters are moving and along the right hand side is space for the director, or producer, to write their own captions. The drawings are done from the camera’s point of view and the artist has added lighting ideas in. Storyboarding helps with producing a video adding to the creative value and ensuring that the time is optimised and used to the greatest advantage on filming days.
