Storyboarding our Video Illustration Scripts

April 25, 2007

Today we are going to draw storyboards to plan how our video shots will look.

For an explanation of how to make your storyboards effective download this document: Storyboards.

Also, here is a template for building a story using storyboards: Creating your Storyboards

Here are some examples of other peoples’ storyboards — look for how they use wide shots, mid shots and close ups to tell their stories:

* working at a desk (3 shots)

* multiple samples

* a cowboy fight (many shots)

* wrestling for a toaster (many shots)


1. Let’s watch 3-307’s video illustration and create storyboards for their 3 shots.

2. Use this storyboarding worksheet to draw 3 shots that tell the story you wrote in your 3 sentence script.  Use the left column to say what type of “shot” it will be, and to describe the most important things you want your audience to see.  In the right column write down any sounds you want the audience to hear (music, sound, sound effects).

    All thanks to for that illustration. We searched for examples of storyboards on the Internet, and posted them to our site for our lesson.
