Your First Storyboard


Once you have learned about storyboards and decided if you are to use a storyboard template or use StudioBinder’s online storyboarding program, it is time for you to create your first storyboard.

Before you design a storyboard for your own script, you should practice by creating a storyboard in reverse. That is, you should create a storyboard for a film that already exists.

Take a look at the clip below, which will start 27sec into the scene from ‘Kubo and the Two Strings’. Once you have watched it, go back and check it out again, while creating the storyboard for this part of the scene, from 27sec through to the end of the clip. It should take you just over 10 shots. If you are using StudioBinder and don’t want to draw your storyboard, you can take screenshots of each shot within the clip and then import those images into your storyboard.
