Studio 3 – Storyboard

Design, Graphic Design, Marketing

Hey guys! I’ve been working hard on my project as we only have a few days left before it’s all due. One of the final learning outcomes is making a short ad for my cafe.

The first step was thinking through the style of ad I wanted and what type of shots I would want in it. After a bit of research I wrote out a “shot list” (I think that’s the right terminology). This is the list of shots I came up with:

  • Street view
    • 2 angles because it’s a corner cafe
      • pan up one side of building (past window)
      • pan from other side
      • maybe further away shot of cafe (from across the street)
  • walking into the cafe
  • pan of coffee machine
  • tamping coffee grind
  • setting up a coffee shot
  • shot dripping out
  • people talking or laughing
  • pan of outside area
  • someone holding a cup
  • pouring milk
  • sipping coffee
  • people chatting
  • food in cabinet
  • cup on the bench

I’ve also drawn up a bit of a storyboard (don’t judge me because it’s the first one I’ve done and I don’t think I’m much of a drawer – stick figures for the win!).
