          Shot lists or storyboards are essential in making films. The one time I didn't have either was a much going on set that it was hard to focus and remember what shots we were after. A list or board would've been helpful. Why I tried it that time without, I'll never know.

          I'm more of a storyboard serves the same point as a shotlist, but includes a rough drawing to allow on-set crew to get the idea of the shot quickly.

          I made a PDF with all sortsa storyboard templates to choose from.

            Storyboarding and Shot list

            Currently there is a free piece of software you can download that helps with all of this. Check it out here: StoryBoard Pro Software - Atomic Learning

            BTW, ToonBoom makes a really cool software but it's too expensive.
