Your quick guide on how to create a storyboard
Start by thinking about your story and the main idea behind it. Identify the flow, describe the beginning, middle, and end, and make an outline for your video.
Sketch out your story to have a clear visual understanding of it. Think about the aspect ratio of your video, and use rectangles of the same size when drawing your storyboard mockup.
Present each step of your screenplay with sketches, illustrations, or photos. Determine the color palette and other visual elements of your storyboard, depending on the purpose and audience it is made for.
Number each rectangle in your storyboard. Add notes about each scene of your project. Describe subjects, actions, and other important details.
What are the main benefits of a storyboard?
It is a good way to sketch out your story. Besides, storyboards make the production process easier and more effective. It also helps piece together details and organize your time.
What should a storyboard include?
Storyboards usually consist of several square sections with illustrations. They visualize every shot in your project, contain notes that describe what happens in each scene, and include dialogues if necessary.
What is the difference between storyboard and animatic?
Storyboards are sketches of your story — static illustrations that represent the main idea and plot in every scene. Animatic is a more complex storyboard that not only shows idea realization, but also makes it possible to see the general dynamic of your future video. In Crello, you can create both a storyboard and an animatic online, with minimal effort.
