Parts Of Storyboards That Are Vital In Film Making Everyone in the movie directing business, from the amateurs to the greats, may benefit from planning their scenes on storyboards before they bring in the actors and videographers. Hitchcock is only one of the greats that made use of storyboarding. A storyboard is merely a still image of what a camera shot will look like, and it can involve descriptions of camera movement in the form of arrows and other directions for when (and if) the concepts on the storyboard make it to filming. A storyboard can be accomplished with pen or pencil and paper, or it can be a more advanced and high tech storyboard made using a computer studio application. These high tech software programs make it possible for storyboards to be 3-D, moveable and can be experimented with with regards to lighting and camera angles. The storyboards formulated with computer programs can be quite visually appealing to your potential investors, producers, and others in the business which you wish to attract to the aid of any project. Computer generated storyboarding will help you to effectively communicate what exactly you would like to portray, much more accurately. Whether or not you go the pen-and-paper or computer route, the basics of how to make a storyboard stay the same. You ought to first, think about how you would like the scene to appear. Look at the initial scene plus the characters you intend to include, the setting and the whole plot. You will need to next think about the scene on a shot by shot basis. Think about how many cameras will probably be needed even for just a minute of footage in a picture. Take for instance that scene in Psycho, where she is in the shower and imagine that shot alone taking 70 different cameras angles for two minutes of footage. For the first few minutes of your prepared scene, draw out each shot from every imagined angle. If you are planning a lengthy pan over some scenery, either you can illustrate a series of storyboards for one shot, or use arrows on the storyboard to provide a time-saving movement. Example: You're introducing the individuals Jill and Jane. The scene is being shot while in front of Jill's home, with her looking tranquil but dismal while smoking a cigarette. The second shot is a close-up of Jill, in particular her hand clutching the cigarette near lips on a resigned face with an increased exposure of the wrinkles around the eyes and the purse of the lips. The next set of images show Jill's eyes widening in wonder where Jane is standing at the gateway looking at her friend. Next is a moderate distance shot of Jane with some of the fence and a little of the road behind her. Here is where your able to include certain details of the scene you would like the audience to notice including the handbag Jane is lifting or the state of her garments. For every single scene in your script, this technique would need to be repeated as the visualization advances as the story plays out. If the storyboards look just like a rough version of the way you want the scenes to look, ask yourself if each scene may be shot as intended given the places it will be shot in. There are physical limitations to what a camera is able to do inside a little room, for instance. Can the camera do what you want it to do for every single scene? Once you've made adjustments to rule out the implausible images, you're ready to wrap-up the storyboard pre-planning of how your film will be shot.
