Curriculum Corner: Storyboarding

The Guerrilla Guide To Moviemaking, Moviemaking 101/201 curriculum teaches the fundamentals of filmmaking.

Picture this...

Talking about an idea for a video is a great way to get started, but the execution of that idea will never be described the same way twice. A storyboard organizes the thought process and creates a vision. And as the vision grows, changes can be incorporated into the storyboard to ensure nothing is forgotten along the way.

The storyboarding process forces students to start thinking in terms of the language of film. It helps them figure out not only what scenes are needed (and not needed), but how to compose shots, determine angles and think about how to transition from one scene to the next. If the story doesn't make sense on paper, it probably won't make sense on the screen.

A storyboard is a road map that provides everyone working on the project with an idea of what is expected of them. Especially in editing, the storyboard breaks down the story for the editor scene by scene.
