http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/storyboarding-your-film.html This link presents some of the preparation points required when creating a storyboard from a screenplay, be it for a theatre, TV, or film production. One point in particular is to “write down important information that describes in detail what the illustration doesn’t show or enhances what is drawn in the frame above. For example, include any important dialogue, camera directions, scene numbers, or special-effects instructions”. Through browsing various templates and images of storyboards using a search engine, many tend to use a single box beneath the image, which I felt may be too vague, and so created my own storyboard template, which included space to record the preconceived timing of the shots.
Depending on the scale of the project the director could be the one to create the storyboard, though most often an artist or group of artists are hired and create multiple drafts of the storyboard in collaboration with the director and the various departments (should any extra information be required).
- The script draft will need to be added
- Some of the text screens need to be removed to increase the effectiveness of those remaining. The ones we are considering removing are those of ‘shots’ 12, 15, and 16
- As we gain a more complete idea of what props and locations we are using the storyboard can become more detailed
