Let’s get right to the case! How do you plan storyboard? – Easy, you start with a script that is based on content plan which is based on all of your work that has been done previous weeks of your project community course and then you draw. Sounds simple and basic, but its not. From my own experience story boards are a bit of a pain in the seat.
So how did Split United plan a storyboard? Let’s start from the start. Previous week tech steward (Hey that’s me!) read the course guide till the end week and knew that this week we would have to make a story board. So the tech steward (me again!) wrote a small plan about what should be included in the script (content for the video). So when we started to get to the whole script writing for the video, we had a base to build it on, per se. Also we has this thing called Delf Design Guide which helped a bit.
So our teams lovely, Production Manager (today we are not naming people) created an awesome basis script for our video, which we made the story board from (so far we nailed everything), but we got a little bit confused on the story board so we drew it a bit wrong (just a bit). The storyline between the frames was a bit confusing, but that didn’t stop us. We improved our script and created a new story board. You can read all about our story board in the rest of our blog!(nobody just reads one blog post)
How is our work on our video. So far as, as I mentioned 5 times before (yes, I counted, end of discussion) we wrote a script which is the base and guidelines, and content, and almost a speech, and our advice, and everything we did all these five weeks (sorry, I’m just hyped). Since we work with the other team together, we needed to make sure they have a script as well which we will combine to a final script. That script will base all the video animations and speech and much more.
Also, we discussed the whole video making, both team agreed that we will make a stop motion drawing animation video, well it’s a bit hard to explain how the video animations will be based, but it will be awesome. We still have to combine some script and think through what kind of animations we will make and how they will tie together with each other. Since our groups had a meeting together we discussed that 4 (I’m one of them, but don’t tell anyone) people will work on video and its animations, we will meet together for a separate meeting outside school meetings.
That’s our plan so far on the video and the story board, of course some things will change, but this is the basis!
