Video Pre-Production

The quality of your video is usually determined long before you start shooting. If you are willing to do the work and take your time BEFORE you shoot, your video is far more likely to turn out well.

Good videos ALWAYS come from good plans. Good planning/preparation will save you a lot of time and will allow you to come up with a much more organized, interesting, professional video every time.

The most important step in your planning is to come up with a detailed StoryBoard:


Templates: StoryboardTemplate (Word) Storyboard (pdf)

OR, to work together, try a Google Document! Google Doc template / Microsoft Word version: VideoPlanningTemplate

BEFORE I even consider letting you shoot something, you NEED a DETAILED, COMPLETE PLAN! No exceptions!

Your first assignment will be to create a storyboard for a video. You don’t actually have to make this video, although if you have an idea for a video that you want to make later, this might be a good time to get started on it.

We will come up with an idea together and you can choose to use it for your first storyboard OR come up with your own idea.
