The movie is first made in the head.
The script makes the story, dialogue, and plot points in a systematic, linear format. The team relies on this tool to know what to do and uses this as a reference point for the action and dialogue lines.
It is a good idea to improvise on your ‘bound’ script and let the actors improvise their performance, enhancing the story and visual impact.
Acting as a rough visual scene sequence for the filmmaker, the Storyboard represents what shots are planned to be filmed. Many details can be planned over here, based on the ideas in the filmmaker's head that need to be brought to screen.
For those who cannot draw, it is a good idea to click pictures on the smartphone of props representing how you want the scene to be shot later.
It pays to take as much time as possible to get the right people to work with, considering their work experience, discipline and talent stack. One can hold auditions to select the best talent, and not just take someone you know from the past, as an obligation or courtesy.
