Free Storyboard Software?

    I think it's that a storyboard shows the sequence of shots in chronological
    order, but a shooting list shows them in some other order. Eg, a shooting
    list might group by location and may be further ordered within that (like,
    shoot the scenes with the goodie and baddie doing battle before you blow the
    set up in the spectacular ending sequence).

    That's the 3rd time you've come out with this crap. The past 2 times I
    proved you were lying. Where is *your* proof?

    Well, it's not what I would call a shooting list....

    A shooting list will be a list of scenes and shot required for each
    scene, along with a synopsis of the script and the actors / props used
    for each scene (along with any notes, such as hand held, steady-cam,
    H&S problems etc.), the shots might well not be in the same order of
    the storyboard.

    The function of the shooting list is to plan for the most efficient
    use of the camera / time etc., you might well be shooting the opening
    scene and the very last scene next to each other for example, if you
    are only shooting in one location and on one day then you probably
    don't really need a shooting list (schedule).

    In Wally's case, he's wanting to find out what is good for him,
    myself, i'm far more creative using a computer than i am with pencil
    and paper.

    As i enjoy making comic books i find the best way for me to plan out a
    film is usually with a script done on a word processor which i can
    then bring in 'cartoon strips' off how i want the camera shots to look

    Alot of these sadly never get made, but its good fun creating them,
    and they remain nice and easy to edit if i ever go back and find i
    have the right people, and the time to realise my ideas.

    I also feel that the added advantage of using a computer is that you
    can define objects to bring into each scene when needed, and of course
    copy and paste functions, something that is much harder to achieve on
    I use a storyboard to give me direction when filming, and also to give
    an indication on the feel of a film before setting out to film it

    What information appears in our individual storyboards, and how we
    arrange them is up to us and cannot be globally defined, surely?

    He usually runs away in a sulk and materialises a month later. ;)

    Personally i do find Jerry's posts quite informative it's just a shame
    he follows them up with such aggresive gusto that offends everyone. :(

    Yeah, where you gonna find all those m&m's to stick on the stones? ;)

    Seriously though, the only way that really differs to what i do is
    have rough timings for each shot (I don't use colour either... thats
    sooooo this century:)

    I find that once i've been working on a storyboard for quite a while
    it cements itself in my head and i don't usually need it by the time i
    go out to film (That is with stuff where i'm doing it all myself).

  7. A storyboard shows the film in sequence. A shooting list shows a
    convenient order for shooting the scenes. A shooting list tends to be
    more technical than a storyboard.

    Exactly. Anything that helps produce better video is to be encouraged.

    I wondered that at one time. If it were true, then one (or other) must
    have been talking to himself in my kill-file :)

  11. I can't say that I personally have ever come across a "shooting list". A
    "shooting schedule" and a "shot list", yes - different but similar, pre and
    Stuart - have your say about the state of UK Television

    The last time this came up you accused Dave and me of being the same
    person, whilst trying to deflect from the fact that you were in the
    process of being proved wrong - and guess what you are trying to do
    yet again....

    Morgan, you are a liar and a troll.

    Many thousands of people must use that spam trap address, it was set
    up by the owners of the domain as a spam trap address and
    made it public

    For goodness sake guys, I thought you were all supposed to be net savvy.
    Do a google search on and you'll get thousands of people
    using it. The owner of the domain has given his permission for anyone to
    use the address for the purposes of anti-spam.

    Well I don't want to get into a pissing match with you, but I was around
    a long time before you. I've only been using "" for a
    year or two when I changed news servers.
    Sure thing: Message Id <[email protected]>

    I really like the bit where you say:-
    And yet google doesn't show anything like that, as I showed.

    Now I'll ask again, where's your proof? If you have any, I'm man enough
    to apologise.
    Au contraire, I was actually glad to be in your kill file. No doubt
    I'll be back in there if you can't "win" this debate, which is why you
    put me there in the first place.
    That's true, he does do that. And so do you. But at least Jerry never
    accused you of adding more colons to get out of his killfile.
    Nothing worse than cantankerous old men at the wheel, eh Tony!

    If you bothered to check Google, you would see that I've been in this
    group longer than you have [1], you were an obnoxious plank when you
    arrived upon the scene as you are today, did you vote for the creation
    of the group at the CFV's or were you still bogged down in arguing the
    toss with experts on ?...

    [1] My first record on Google seems to return a date for about the 15
    Feb 2001
    Tony seems to have made his first post to the group around the 13 Feb

    'nough said....

    The reason i asked was the nature of your reply, i can't see why you
    should get so upset with Tony when he was arguing with Jerry.

    I understand how the domain works, but it occured to me
    that maybe you had a profile at home and one at work and i never
    realised you were the same person, not that you are the same person
    trying to disguise it.

    Levels of annoyance aside, I called Tony up on his accusation that Jerry
    had recently changed his posting name to get out of Tony's kill file.
    That struck me as odd, so I checked google and saw that Jerry hadn't
    changed anything. Tony then repeated the accusation some months later, so
    I called him on it again. And now this is the third or forth time he's
    done it.

    A very simple google search showed that Jerry hadn't changed his posting
    name, so I don't understand why Tony would claim and still claims that he

    If it had been the other way round, I would have challenged Jerry. I have
    an equal opportunities bullshit detector.
