I’ll admit it: I love to play around with the video tools on my computer.  I probably waste HOURS that I could be spending doing something else, but I can’t help it.  There’s something about creating a video with great transitions, effects and music that combine to craft a great story that just draws me in.


The other day as I was working on another project, my daughter noticed that my video production process was similar to how she is being taught to craft a paragraph: an strong opening sentence (the opening logo and music), followed by 2-3 sentences of supporting details (the main message of the video), and closing with a sentence that sums up the main idea (the closing sequence).  Genius!


In today’s video tip, I’m sharing how to translate this connection through the storyboard process.  It’s a great way to connect the new media arts standards with writing and theater.
