craft your story in just 4 steps


1. add the people in your story

Whether you know who is in your video or not, add the people who may be in your video to Storybuilder. Attach pictures, leave detailed notes, and give others the ability to quickly get to know anybody in your video.


2. brainstorm the potential plot points

Within every video, there is 'stuff' that happens. Each main event, scene, or moment can be added to Storybuilder as a Plot Point. Connect a Plot Point to related people, add notes and pictures, and even tag it as one of the main moments in your story. 


3. define the objective 

The vast majority of conflict within your team or with your clients is due to a lack of goal clarity.

Storybuilder gives you prompts that aid in developing 5 Story Keywords. 

Defining the Story Keywords is a guaranteed way to drastically reduce revisions while increasing your team's connection to the work.


4. build your story

Drag the key plot points into a timeline, see how they fit into the overall beginning/middle/ending of the story, and try different story structures.

In the end, you can export to a PDF Storyboard in just a click–complete with images, titles, and descriptions on each panel.
