As a continuous series of illustrations, a storyboard visualises crucial scenes of a script.

The storyboard is created before video content is produced, so that important changes can be implemented at this early stage. Visualisation allows a more comprehensible picture of the final product, but also highlights weaknesses in the concept and also helps in the estimation of the production costs.

A storyboard is often used to obtain the approval for the video production by a customer.
