The Idea Donkey provides full-service video production to our clients, beginning with the conceptualisation of the video. No matter what kind of video content you wish to create—whether that’s a-mini documentary or an advertising video—a video storyboard design is a necessary step in the pre-production process to create a cohesive and captivating final product.

What is a storyboard?

A storyboard is a physical representation of the video planned shot-by-shot. We create storyboards using analogue or digital methods, sketching out the timeline and noting down any important elements of the shot as we go. It’s a script for the person coordinating the shots, and is a scene-by-scene representation of what the video should look like once it’s completed.


Notes below shot representations in a video storyboard can include:

Lines from an established script.

The movement of the actors or camera.

Notes about the props being utilised in the shot.

Music or non-diegetic sound being used.


Why create a storyboard?

Planning a video storyboard is a crucial step in the process of creating a video. It’s the roadmap that takes us to the ideal result, and it makes communication between our team of creatives and you easier.

It's time for Lights! Camera! Action!
