  • Creating your storyboards requires careful consideration of your shots, the movement of actors through the space and the relationship between objects. Invest time into using this tool to refine your vision.
  • You would be well advised to walk through the storyboards with the DP, get his or her input, and use that feedback for a revision. It is especially valuable to do this in the actual physical space where the movie will be shot.
