Lesson 6: Pre-production preparation – storyboarding

This lesson is to help prepare students for storyboarding their ad. Example: Any ad to be re-screened or choice of one that hasn’t been shown yet.

Learning intention

  • Prepare for the shots and angles that would be needed in an ad, by practicing to storyboard.

Success criteria

  • "I can" create a storyboard that has a variety of shots and angles appropriate for the ad.


Students are to complete the storyboarding activity where they are directed into storyboarding a segment of any of the ads they have studied in the module. Storyboards must include a ‘pack shot’ (shot of the product).
