SUMMARY

  • Storyboards represent the director's road map for shooting. The better developed the visualization, the fewer adjustments need to be made in production.
  • Good preparation and careful development of the visualization should mean that the storyboard matches the final shot. Some deviations will occur but what you plan should be what you shoot.
  • One can expect that minor deviations from the Storyboard will happen, adjustments will always need to be made in production. However, these adjustments should be minor.
