Storyboarding Tips for Better Student Video Productions

Storyboarding is a graphic or visual process of detailing the main actions and settings in a video, shot by a shot, before the recording process takes place. A storyboard shows how a video evolves from beginning to end and for each shot or segment, includes ideas for setting, characters, design, narration/script, and shot selection. In a nutshell, it’s an essential tool to prepare for success in your video production process.

I have had the pleasure of partnering with SchoolTube University to produce a series of free webinars in order to help educators and students improve their video productions. Recently, released their latest article which goes in-depth about the purposes and positive effects of creating a storyboard.

Click here to read the full SchoolTube article, “Storyboarding Tips for Better Student Video Productions.” The article also includes a link to my short webinar (it’s free to enroll with just an email) where I share ideas, images, and a student video example about the how to successfully implement storyboards in your video creations. Here’s a blank storyboard to get you started.
