An animatic story board helps you decide what type of shot angle you will use when actually filming as it is like a small scale film. From this, you can see from what you first thought was a good angle, or if it wasn't. We used jelly babies for our preliminary piece so it was on a much smaller scale. We learnt a lot of techniques through this, it was hard at first as you cannot direct the jelly babys.. however it was valueble practice. I think it was a laugh, as well as enjoying it we learnt a range of techniques and practisced them through editing, adding sound ect.
