Creating Your First Project Using the Storyboard

Few video editors rely on the storyboard. It's more a bridge to editing than a true productivity tool. Like A/B editing, it got its start in film. It's still in heavy use today as a pre-production tool. Directors call on artists to sketch out scenes to help visualize story flow and camera angles. I've seen animated feature film storyboards (bulletin boards) that filled several conference rooms.

In Premiere its primary function is as a video post-production tool. You can display video clip thumbnails in the storyboard to help structure the flow of your production. It can come in handy by revealing gaps in your story--places that need fleshing out with more video or graphics. It's also a way to note redundancy. But for most folks it serves solely as a one-time introduction to nonlinear editing. Use it once and move on.
