A storyboard is the equivalent of an outline for a paper. When you create a media project, you start with a storyboard.
Storyboards serve the following purposes:
If you’re writing a full script out first, it shouldn’t be longer than 2 double-spaced pages or reading it will take longer than 3 to 4 minutes.
Podcasts, voiceovers, bears, oh my! Take stock of your background noise: fans, A/Cs, dogs barking, kids playing. Do what you can to minimize those sounds — turn off the fan, close doors to muffle loud noises in other rooms. But remember: it's not the end of the world if you can't control the noise around you.
When recording only audio, there are two options:
Computer: Record in Zoom, and Zoom will provide an “audio_only” file!
Smartphone: Smartphones should have built-in recording apps!
iPhone: Voice Memos
Android: Voice Recorder
No matter what editing tool you use, remember to collect all the media files you’re using for a podcast in ONE FOLDER.
