Planning Before you even start shooting your video you need to decide what you or the people in the video will be doing or saying. Professional movie makers use scripts and storyboards to make sure their movies flow and are interesting.  


Scripts A script is just the words the actors/participants will be saying. Some people are really good at talking on the spot with little to no preparation but for the most of us it helps to have something written down.
