What is a storyboard?

A storyboard is a shot-by-shot visual plan that shows what a film will look like before the film is shot.

The storyboard acts as a visual guide to the team shooting the film.

Here you’ll learn about what storyboards are used for, why they’re important, and how to create them. 

You can create storyboards in a variety of ways. We recommend starting by hand if you're new to storyboard, and then move on to using a free digital storyboarding tool called Storyboarder.

Watch the video below before jumping into one of the storyboard lessons.
