Text Storyboarding Or Editing On Paper

I don’t know about you but sometimes I get stuck on trying to make a good video. Not great, not perfect just a good video. One factor is self censoring or not wanting to put up crap. The other part is trying to do something different.  And then there is the time factor. I don’t have a lot of it.

I need a process that lets me do video editing away from the computer. I can snatch ten minutes here and there. So, how could I do that?

This is a prototype idea. I don’t know if it has been done before. I’m thinking out loud. I have a video that is giving me major problems.

What Do I Have? 

  • Two minutes of video. Parts of it are shaky
  • Good audio
  • Images extracted from video
  • Performer’s web site and other information from reviews and write ups.


Title Card:

Body of Video:

  1. Shot 1 – What will the viewer see first?
  2. Cut or transition
  3. Shot 2
  4. Cut or transition
  5. Shot 3
  6. Cut or transition
  7. Shot 4  - How will the video end?

Closing Credits

  1. Information card for performer’s web site
  2. Copyright card
  3. Blog URL

Again, I’m just trying to get a version of this video out of my head so that I can compose more effectively when I have time to edit. Which I don’t.  I am also trying to solve the problem of the shaky video, I will not upload that but how can I replace the not so good parts?

This is just an idea. I am working out a kind of template I can work on during the day.
