First draw a reverse storyboard

  1. Choose a short scene from a DVD that you like
  2. Watch the scene and then use the pause button to storyboard each shot.
  3. Consider why the filmmaker has chosen each type of shot and angle used. How are they trying to make the audience feel?

Now try your own storyboard:

  1. Think about an idea for a film.
  2. Starting with the first scene, draw the main characters and action of each shot in the scene.
  3. Include the shot size, the movement of the camera (if any) and the angle of the shot.
  4. Continue for each scene in the film.
