    Default What format do you present your storyboards in to your DP and crew?

    When it comes to doing storyboards I was thinking about learning how to use frameforge and doing it that way, to present them with more clarity. But how do you present them to your DP and crew, after you are done?

    Does it look more professional to give them a binder with all the storyboarded shots in, or a perhaps just a downloadable file with them all in if I do it on frameforge, so they can see the camera movements, as oppose to on paper?

    What do you think?

    I sometimes show up on set with hand drawn storyboards.
    Nobody wonders what software I use as long as it communicates.
    But when presenting a plan to a client and a storyboard is part of it I draw it in Photoshop.
    Why? It is the software I know. Other tools might be better, but I use a Wacom and then Photoshop does the trick for me.
    Then save it as a pdf.

    Oh okay. Do you think I should just email them out as a pdf? I actually don't want to show up the day of the shoot with storyboards. I want to have the script storyboarded and send that all out at once, to go over things longer in advance. Unless sending out the whole storyboards for all of it, at once is not the way to go for any reason?

    If you want to communicate your storyboard in advance you will have to send or give it.
    Do you really need someone to approve that for you before you dare to do it?

    If you want to do things the professional way: don't ask the internet about every decision, but act logically to do what needs to be done.

    Oh okay thanks, I thought maybe there was a standard way of presenting the format, kind of like how there is a standard screenplay format, etc.

    You did not ask about a standard.

    Oh sorry. Well what about a standard, is there a standard format they should be presented in?
