creating a story boardCreating a Storyboard

Now that you have put your adventure into words, it is time to share with the world the words and the still images, video cuts or animation to depict your message. This throughout time has be called creating a storyboard.

We have written our story using a structure to help us focus on the outcome of our message. In a similar fashion, we want to use a structured planned approach to what images show up when, and what parts of the words we have used apply to what images. Again, we call this “Creating a Storyboard.”

In this video, I share for or 5 storyboard examples to help you when you start creating a storyboard. You will see from the examples that most storyboards have a few empty squares you can use to make stick figures and backgrounds, and then a few blank lines to insert some text.

How This Mass Storyboarding Has Worked in the Past

You have the finished text that has finally been edited by the editing group and the senior editing group. The story is complete. Now what happens is, each student in the school is handed one paragraph, or more or less, depending on how you want to go about it.

Each student draws a little picture, or series of pictures as to how that text will be depicted in the final project.

All of these depictions are gathered and screened by the same group that screened the images for the characters, backgrounds and other artwork developed in the process.

Finally, a three ring binder is created where the paragraph by paragraph storyboard is complied. I would call this, “The Bible” of the project. This three ring binder is used by the computer kids that put everything together, and for the final master editor to work with.

There Ya Go! Creating a Storyboard. You are almost finished.
