The storyboard is a common way for a filmmaker to convey his concept to the Client. It is similar to a comic book in that a series of frozen frames relays the flow and something of the look of an intended film. In the case of a commercial, one can have a frame from every shot of the film. In the case of a documentary or information-intense film, the storyboard may be less applicable but may still be useful for the client to understand the filmmaker’s vision. When the script and some flat-art representation of the film are reviewed and approved by the Client, a schedule board can be made—this determines the cost of production. Planning is everything in a successful production, and a well drawn up storyboard will help the director, set designer and everybody else involved visualize and create your vision for the project.
