Think of the storyboard as a comic strip. Each block has a picture with an action and a
line or two of dialog. You can draw pictures or type or handwrite a description of the
action in the blocks. For each action, write a script or summarize the action for the
characters in your commercial.
How To Complete Your Storyboard
Almost every TV commercial, TV show, or video began as a storyboard. The
storyboard is a sheet of paper that breaks down the elements of a video production into
what you see and what you hear.
Your storyboard is divided into eight frames. Using pictures or words, you will use the
box to describe what one sees in your video. Then you will type or write in the words or
sound effects heard below that box. This is the Audio. It can be the spoken words of
people on camera, the words of an announcer who is not on camera, or words that
appear on the screen. Sometimes it’s a combination of all three.
Since what you show on screen changes, each box will contain the next progression of
the commercial. Remember though, you only have 30-seconds to get everything done.
So your storyboard shouldn’t be very long or complex.
