Chapter 12Storyboarding and Directing Your Talent

Before you take the ideas in your head and just start shooting footage, it’s very important that you first create a storyboard of your project. This will be a visual guide—a map of sorts—that will allow you to communicate those ideas to the rest of your crew. It will also help keep you on course so you don’t stray too much from your original plan, which can end up wasting a lot of time and money. The better you can communicate these ideas to your talent and crew, the more successful your project will be, both in front of the green screen and in the postproduction process.
