Storyboard Success

I originally had the grand idea of making my storyboard like a pitch for a new magazine photoshoot, then I realized this would take a lot of time and effort (something I do not currently have with an 18 credit schedule). Then I decided to make a poster and divide it into four different “scenes” (one for each section of my website). This turned into a fail too. I realized that using my laptop and all of the wonderful technologies would be the best way to go, so I started designing a mock website homepage and had a ton of fun experimenting with colors, fonts, layout, and design. Then I added in reflective comments to justify my choices and explain my purpose. After creating my storyboard, I decided to steer away from Glamour and produce my own website. Why should I stick to their theme when I have my own wonderful ideas? My current challenge is choosing the proper platform–I would LOVE if I could actually develop a usable site. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Storyboard Mayhem

I’m currently trying to figure out how to compile this story board.  This is much more complicated than I had initially expected.  I know what components are necessary for my audience, but it is quite challenging to figure out how I want it to look in advance.  Normally, I begin my essays with a fairly structured outline format.  I anticipated this to be just the visual representation of how a video would look.  However, this is not the case.  I can rely on my words to insinuate transitions and topic changes.  Paragraphs structure my sentiments.  Readers can anticipate focused discussions inside of paragraphs.

In making my storyboard, I feel like it is a huge run on sentence and sequence of ideas.  I want to make it more engaging than just a visualization of myself reading my essay.  I hope that I will be able to integrate some diagrams into the presentation perhaps.  We will just have to see how operation-make-a-video goes for me.
