PART 3 - AVOIDING MISTAKES WHILE YOUR VIDEO IS BEING PRODUCED

Expect a visual storyboard

There are two main types of storyboard.

Those for digital explainer videos which may use stock footage or graphics

- and those for filmed videos.

The principle is the same for both. It's about matching off a suitable image for each phrase or sentence in the video script

With an animation you go into more visual detail by showing exact images of what will be in the video

- while with a filmed video you might use a photograph, or verbal text description, as nothing needs to be drawn, just filmed.

The storyboard will let you quickly see how the images and text perfectly match off against each other, with still images showing exactly what’ll be produced for the final video.

All ready for comment by you and your team.

Digital explainer storyboard

Filmed video

A filmed video storyboard should detail all the shots that need filming, plus show a Shoot Schedule for the day, complete with a Cast & Props list.

A Filmed Video Storyboard is a very functional doc, that manages the whole shoot, as well as explain what images will be in the video.

Obviously, it can’t show shots of locations, though it might contain a photograph or two from the video Director’s site recce.

What’s central is the detail in the storyboard.

Perfect videos are as much about getting the details right as they are getting the big picture.

So your storyboard should show a lot of detail. If it doesn’t, then it means you’re guessing. Or someone’s guessing!

Look for the detail and check it’s perfect. This works.
