Why you should create a storyboard

Storyboarding is really important when it comes to shooting video. Starting a new project can feel daunting enough as it is so it’s important to plan as much as you can.

Planning is key when organizing a shoot and storyboarding will help you visualize your ideas, explain them to other people and solidify your narrative.
