When planning out your video, sit down with your assignment and make a list of ideas. Now is the time to be creative!
Sift through your list and ask your team the important questions:
Cross off anything complicated, expensive, far away, or otherwise impractical. While planning your video, think ahead to avoid legal problems and other painful experiences. Keep ideas that are creative, simple, safe, fun, and legal...and meet your assignment requirements!
Once you have your ideas in place, create a storyboard. Storyboarding before you shoot any footage will help you streamline filming and editing your video and avoid problems like continuity errors and meandering plot lines.
