R+P Post 11: Our storyboard

First of all we have decided to make a simple timeline, showing the different shots we planned to include, so that later we can make a storyboard for our film opening to help us plan out exactly what we will include in it. The timeline is a very simple idea where we will use different post-it notes to show the different framings we are going to use. On the right is an example of one of the pages. The colour code we are using on the post it notes is:


  • Green - mid shots
  • Yellow - close up shots
  • Blue - long shot
  • Orange - master shot
  • Pink - titles


  • From the timeline, we are using the same coloured post-it notes to make a storyboard which we felt would help us see if the shots we had planned would actually work. As you can see, we have drawn out a simple diagram of what happens in each shot. This method also saves us a lot of time, as we are able quickly move the post-it notes around if we are not sure about them. We split the timeline up into three sections and all helped to draw the different shots from each section, asking each other if we weren't sure about a shot.

    The result of this storyboard is that it helped us to see if all the shots fit together, for example if there was any continuity errors, for example with the picture on the right, showing the opening door sequence. Here we see a coninuity error because there is a jump from a long shot panning across the room, to a close up opening he door handle. This error was easy to fix. This method  helped us notice if there were any other jump cuts or continuity errors, so we could get this sorted straight away, before we went on to the next stage of planning.
