- Story Boarding is a way to Pre visualise for videography.
- Story boarding allows you to stay organised when you start filming as you know what you want to achieve.
- Allows things to run smoothly in the editing process
- Storyboards are visual representations of your video before you begin filming
- Storyboards do not have to be a master piece, just a brief outline drawing of what you want.
- If you can not draw you can find a website online which will help you create your storyboards

These were my key points that I managed to pull out, but someone else has took the time to go into more detail, some you may not agree with, and some I feel are more of an accusation of what they think certain moments mean:
This was the actual storyboard made of the shower scene in Psycho
We also had to create our own story board for this video
Here is my story board below:
