Introduction to Film & Video students have hit the ground running with Pre-Production by creating storyboards. Storyboards help with organizing the video before production begins. Once the storyboards are created, students can follow a shot by shot document while recording in the “field.” The ‘Locker Project’ is an assignment where students understand the use of various shots (i.e. MS – Medium Shot, CU – Close Up), editing techniques and utilizing the Rule of Thirds. Having a detailed set of storyboards will help guide the students during the recording and Post-Production process.
