The Dominoe Storyboard
example story about Dominoe
, I had a script with only a few words per image. If you want to be very organized, you might create a storyboard like below. At a minimum, you should keep a text file with your captions or narration as you may find yourself copy pasting the text. As part of the process, this ought to be done in advance of looking for media or jumping into tools. Your story will be vastly better if you outline it first, and keep re-working it. Even better, ask someone else to look at it. A good story exists in your mind and on paper before you put it inside a tool.

I was in between. Fiercely independent, had money saved up, and some time before I went west.
My roommate called. Someone found a runaway dog. Dominoe.
Named her after the damsel in
Malnourished, Skittish, afraid of a raised hand.
We walked into the woods, she always following a few yards away, my buddy.
One day we drove farther and walked in the autumn leaves.
Met an old friend. We chatted about 15 minutes, and I turned around.
She was gone.
I was hours running up and down the trail, crying out her name. I was worthless. I could take care of myself, but no one else, worthless.
[Note: This image is merely a cropped version of previous to emphasize emptiness]
I would camp out, return the next day. I would do that every day unti I found her. Every day.
[Note: An empty black screen is useful, sets a tone]
I cried back to the car... and there she was, waiting for me.
My awareness became a circle of responsibility of more than just myself.
We drove across the country
saw strange lands
made a home
She departed permanently, but I never forgot what I learned that day in the woods.
