What’s Your Story?

The storyboard gives Kirk a "visual" picture of what a shot should look like.

Intern: Serena

What’s your story? I went on a film shoot with Kirk and Jeff to get footage of the workers installing Metal Design Systems carefully made steel at Prairie Point.

It was quite the shoot–just think 90+ degree weather surrounded by cement and steel siding!

After taking a look at this picture, I began to think of one thing. Water. The second thing I thought about is how powerful an idea is. Do you ever think that most shots that a cinematographer captures was first an idea in someone’s mind? Maybe it was an organization that had the vision, or maybe it was the camera operator, the director, or the man on the street. But someone had the idea.

Think about the movies. You’re watching the compilation of someone’s (or some ones) idea! One man named Napoleon Hill understood this concept, too. He often said, “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

If you can dream it, you can achieve it!

Storyboards help cinematographers “see” the idea that producers and directors and organizations have for film project.
