When you write a paper, you start with an outline. When you create a media project, you start with a storyboard.
- allow you to gather your ideas before you begin working with video or audio content.
- encourage you to think about all elements of your digital story: visual, textual, audible.
- allow you to quickly sketch and try out different ideas
- help ID resources needed to complete the project and whether you can find them or need to create them yourself.
- generate questions which can help you decide whether your scope is achievable or not.
- are works in progress. They’ll change as you work on your project
- quick reference: Did you address all assignment elements, such as length and content.
* If you’re writing a full script out first, it shouldn’t be longer than 2 pages or reading it will make your story longer than the 2-3m time frame.
