Why do I need a storyboard?

Storyboards are important for laying out a plan for your movie.  After you decide what the plot or story of your movie will be, you can start making your storyboard to act as an outline for your production.  Even if your movie is short, it is important to know what you want in your shot and what you want happening in that scene.  You also want to have your dialog planned out.

Storyboard : Comic Strip

Think of your storyboard as a comic strip.  Once you have decided what your movie will be about and what type of filming you wil do, sketch out a basic outline of your production.  Include notes about who or what is in the scene, what type of camera shot will be used, and what audio, sound effects, and dialogue will be in present.
