A yellow flower



sessions 17 & 18: create your own storyboard

1. Pupils should create a storyboard of no more than 6 stills, telling the story of their own poem. They can use a digital still camera to take the pictures, spending time considering the effect of each image on the reader / viewer. Pupils should think carefully about how each still links to the next one.

2. Each still should have a written description, detailing camera angles, lighting, lines from their poem etc. Also pupils should indicate what sounds should be used with each image to create the required effect.

3. Pupils should work in small groups to present their portfolio of ideas to the rest of the class.

4. If equipment is available, pupils can use a video camera to film their storyboard, which can then be shown, or the stills can be displayed.
