    Default story boards......

    Having read about the importance of detailing the story board for the coming video production.
    How do members here set about doing this ? is it really detailed, down to a shot by shot detail?

    Personally I prefr to storyboard at a shot level. I only do this on post-its mind you as I can't afford decent software and don't do enough films to justify anything expensive.

    Its well worth the effort though as story boarding gives you a clear idea of how the final film should/may trun out.


    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
    Sony TRV33e : Sony TRV310e : Canon XM2
    Sony Vegas Studio editions to v11

    Remember, there is always more to learn than there is to teach.

    I simply use a pen and paper for storyboarding. Very dull, but effective and minimises the amount of time I spend staring at this damn screen.

    Yup pen and paper - It would take too long to do it in a pc plus alot of the time you may want to sketch your ideas.
