STORYBOARDING

Major films such as Lord of the Rings, use storyboarding to plan out each frame of the entire movie, or at least the most important movement frames. From this they continue to explore in the development of creating a film by creating each storyboard 2D drawing into a miniature scale replica of the film. From this they can even go as far as creating a virtual 3D animated version of each scene, to accurately visualise how the final product may look like.

That is the extreme, the basis that is needed is the standard 2D hand-drawn storyboards. So for our short film production, the minimum is needed, is the standard.
