Last week, Max the director of Lost Hearts, came round with the new script for the beginning and end of the narrative to storyboard for the last pick up shoot of this production.

The program I use is called Frame Forge, which is a basic but very useful storyboard creation tool.

I built a rough plan of the location we will be filming and created the characters that are in this script notable are Stephan (now aged 20), his new girlfriend, Mrs Bunch and Mrs Burrows.

Here are some of the screen grabs from Frame Forge…

Birds eye view of location with actors and camera…
Live camera view…
Storyboard management window for insert script and camera notes…
From there I exported frames and created a printable storyboard as seen below…

Also with Frame Forge you can create a video from the images created to help with the pre-visualization…

I used my logitech G13 to control the camera on frame forge and found it a very efficient method of working.
