This is the equivalent of a rough draft of a paper–this allows us to provide feedback on your script (including science), images and overall narrative perspective. We expect you to use the comments we provide on your storyboard in future revisions of your video.
ASSIGNMENT DIRECTIONS & EXPECTATIONS:
You will be using Powerpoint as a tool to create your digital storyboard. Your storyboard must be submitted in this digital format.
1. Complete script: if you were to record this tomorrow, this is everything that you would say in your video.
2. Complete images: every image you will pair with the narration in your text is required. If you are using videos, please include a screenshot from these.
3. Production details: Indicate if images are screenshots from shorter videos; include information such as transitions, slide length, and any additional sound effects you will be using.
Use this storyboarding template to organize your visuals, script, and sequence.
Your digital copy of the storyboard (Powerpoint file) is due via Trunk by 5:00 pm, November 2, 2012.
TIPS & HELPFUL INFORMATION:
Please view the following video on the elements and creation of an effective storyboard.
In creating digital stories, authors go through a series of steps. These steps generally include:
* Determining the purpose and focus of the story. Will it explain, illustrate, narrate or persuade?
* Researching the purpose and collecting and evaluating the information.
* Choosing the words/facts, visuals/images and audio/sounds.
* Creating the storyboard to organize materials and to communicate the objective.
* Writing the narrative.
* Putting it all together.
* Determining the pace, tone and emotion.
* Sharing the digital story with others.
|1. Point of View||What is the main point of the story and what is the perspective of the author?|
|2. A Dramatic Question||A key question that keeps the viewer’s attention and will be answered by the end of the story.|
|3. Emotional Content||Serious issues that come alive in a personal and powerful way and connects the story to the audience.|
|4. The Gift of Your Voice||A way to personalize the story to help the audience understand the context.|
|5. The Power of the Soundtrack||Music or other sounds that support and embellish the storyline.|
|6. Economy||Using just enough content to tell the story without overloading the viewer.|
|7. Pacing||The rhythm of the story and how slowly or quickly it progresses.|
