Storyboard video: know where to begin and how to start
What elements should you integrate in the storyboard of your video?
You do not need drawing skills to make a great example of a simple storyboard. A storyboard frame is like a comic strip, and in all images, you can integrate:
background: the background is very important (avoid white walls or romms with no decoration),
name the colleagues that will be seen in your video,
all voice effects
visuals if necessary,
and all other narrative elements you think necessary.

More details about our video storyboard creation software
The backbone of every video is its good storyboard. It helps you prepare all the shots that will be used in your project, on both the artistic and technical levels, so that you’re able to pull together a consistent overall vision.
Making your own storyboard can be a daunting task, especially for those with little or no video creation experience. Normally you need to have design skills or work with industry professionals. However, with Pitchy’s user-friendly platform, you can customise your entire video storyboard template without spending lots of time and energy on it.
In the storyboard, it’s up to you to create your frame/details/voiceover/captcha/sketches, your text along with the keywords you want to incorporate into your video for the viewer. You can also choose to include any subtitles. Next, you’ll add in all the visual elements, such as your logos or icons. Pitchy, your online storyboard solution, will then help you put everything in order.
If you get stuck at any step in the production process, you can contact your dedicated expert, who will be happy to offer you advice and guidance without imposing an outside viewpoint on your project.

What are the concrete advantages of storyboarding before video creation?
Clarity: as we said above, making a storyboard means putting your vision into narration and images, making it visual, moving from theory to practice. It is often difficult to get your ideas across simply by gestures and words: with a support and images presented in the form of a table, you can visualise things, see what they will look like on video.
A vision, a course on a single document. Once this storyboard has been assimilated by your teams, no one will get lost: from now on, everyone knows that there is only one step to follow, one narration.
Cut the video into several scenes: this step will allow you to see if the cut is coherent, if the sequence of scenes or interventions is not likely to cause problems (comprehension problems, shooting problems, audio, voice and recordings issues, certain scenes may require additional resources, etc.). Your storyboard should help you during the shooting: it will be your “instructions”, your roadmap.
What is certain is that the storyboard is a real time-saver for everyone, to take into account the constraints of production and budget.
On which media should a storyboard be produced?
There are two schools of thought, two techniques for success for your video clips: paper or digital media. For the latter, there are software programs, the best known of which is Canva, which allows you to create pre-formatted storyboards on the platform. You can then do all the design online, and modify it if necessary, because the storyboard is a draft: you must then make a final version and not deviate from it, at the risk of confusing internal communication on the project.
