The storyboard pitch.
Over the last year of two I have noticed that many of my clients really don’t read the synopsis or script for their project I propose. They will tell you that they did, then often they are surprised with the content as the progress moves along.
I have found that one of the reasons that this happens is that they really don’t not know how to read a script with visualization of the scene.
This is no fault of the client, often it is a learning process that even for myself takes experiences.
This is where the storyboard becomes as important as the script in pitching the project to you client. Using a storyboard as your main tool to pitch your concept to the client creates better communication and helps the organization in production. This in the long run saves money for everyone.
I would suggest that the storyboard pitch you present to the client not be to detail. This is the idea stage, then develop your storyboard for production.
Best of luck!
