Storyboarding goes digital. Tablets have been taking a growing role in the business world, and they are now making a splash with filmmakers, changing traditional tasks into fun and accessible ones, while adding the power to create, edit and share on the fly.
When your video calls for an array of helicopters and soldiers protecting the world from body-morphing invading aliens, how do you explain to your crew what your shots need? By drawing up the plans using pre-vis software.
When you set out to make a movie, the more planning ahead you can do, the better. Figuring out exactly what you'll be doing during a shoot saves your crew time and labor, and saves you, the producer and/or director, from cost overruns and production headaches.
In this how-to training video we show you how and why to assemble a storyboard, organize your resources, and manage a production schedule. When film-making, time is money, and being well organized will keep you on time and, more importantly, under budget.
Few things in life work well without a plan. The same goes for video. Planning a shoot by completing shot sheets, storyboards, logs, and slates can help you to get the shots you need and help your video to look planned and professional.
