Decorative ButtonMake a Plan

Digital video projects require time and planning. A well produced video takes time to create and requires storyboarding, finding media, citing or asking permission to use media, filming, digitizing or converting, editing, and rendering the final product to a file, DVD, or the web. Take time to organize and storyboard your multimedia project BEFORE you get started!

Take a moment to review your assignment or goals in order to consider what is required and what research you will need to do for your Digital Video Project. Once you understand the assignment requirements and select your tools, use the resources below to start storyboarding your project.
