Video Storyboard Analysis

Good Essays
Whether you are watching the TV or a video on YouTube, news stories are everywhere. Before these stories are published, an abundance of filming, editing, and thinking goes into each second of your enjoyment. Interviews are to be completed, anchors are to be filmed, and many steps are needed to complete every story. Four years ago I was introduced to Media Broadcasting and since then, I have grown my knowledge in creating, and producing, a news story video.

A storyboard is similar to a paper outline in the sense that you cook up a general assumption of how your project will turn out. Each person who creates a storyboard will arrange their own differently. Some people will plan out their project to the exact second while others will fabricate a plan and use that as a generalization, but not follow it exactly.

An exception to this could be TV station anchors because there are multiple anchors. The beginning of a script is a general introduction that presents the story and gives a brief description of what the project is about. The anchor is supposed to be the one who speaks more-so than the person(s) who had been interviewed. Paraphrasing what one had said before is a common technique that can help the viewers better understand the point one is trying to bring in. This technique helps the story analysis and enables the script writer to put their own style into the presentation. Commonly this is used for the explanation, or middle of the script. After the story is explained, like in a paper, one needs to conclude everything they have just said. The conclusion will summarize the information you have presented without adding anything new.
