We’re in the midst of a long-term video project, and after looking for the ideal tool for collaborative storyboarding, we decided to make our own! Our program allows scene-by-scene layout, collecting spoken and on-screen text, desired music, animation, and video effects, with a space to draw in for each scene. Collaborators can edit a shared storyboard, adding new scenes anywhere along it and rearranging or deleting existing scenes.
Rebecca’s neck-deep in code and Maria has been testing a simple starter (“alpha”) version with our client. We should enter a beta test phase within a few months. Meanwhile, you can click the image to expand it and get a glimpse of what the storyboarding program looks like now.
