Scripting & Storyboarding
A script is a document that describes the video, including notes about the various shots included and any dialogue or voiceovers. A storyboard is a sequence of drawings that represent the shots planned for a video. Both scripting and storyboarding are important parts of the pre-production process because they enable you to thoughtfully plan your work while they clearly convey to others how your story will flow. Spending time creating both of these documents will save you time and energy when you begin recording, assembling footage, and editing your project.
Creating & Collecting Media
- When recording your own audio or video media, consider borrowing equipment from The Claremont Colleges Library’s Tech Lending Program.
- If you are planning to use media that you have not yourself created, remember to consider any copyright related issues that might be relevant for the material you plan to use.
- Be sure to take advantage of the WeVideo Essentials Library.
Organizing Your Tracks
When working in Timeline Mode, you’ll be able to add as many tracks as you want to an edit. Be sure to name and layer your tracks in a way that will help you keep the edit organized and easy to understand.
