I find I have to plan my shots in advance if I am to get the best out of a location whilst I am there. I have been thinking about an easy cost effective way to storyboard the shots which I can use whilst I am there to make sure I get everything I need. So my current solution is to use a small pad of post-it notes to roughly sketch out the shot I want. I can lay them out on a table and re-arrange the order which helps me develop the visual story as well as edit later. Once its done I stick them back on top of each other into a story booklet. This is a shot of some I am using to plan a trip to film the lighthouses at Beachy head in Sussex. As you can see no drawing skills are needed. All that matters is you know what they mean. I use the little symbol to denote which way the camera is going to point and arrows to show flight path etc. I will add this to my film tips post but would be interested if people have ideas to improve it at all. By the way, pink is not my preferred colour...... and I have just noticed there is no spell checker on a post it note A photo of the site from an app called Sun Seeker showing where the sun will be at any given time and date.
