HOW TO USE THIS TEMPLATE: This is a modular storyboard template layout that you can edit with Adobe InDesign. IDML (InDesign Markup) format is compatible with all InDesign versions from CS4 to InDesign CC 2020.
This storyboard template has 28 DIN A4 vertical (portrait) numbered pages. This storyboard template lets you write your treatment notes alongside your pictures. All you have to do is change the Text and Images layers in InDesign to make it your own. Fill in the title page, add your credit and project details, replace the logo with yours. Then your presentations are ready for print or screen. The text is set in the classic screenplay form type, Courier 10 points with 12,376 points leading. For images, drop your pictures in the Images layer. You can show or hide the Rule of thirds layer guides in locked layers to help you frame your compositions.
Duplicate the spreads or pages you want to use. Remove unnecessary sheets. To edit the footer at once, use the A-Pagination master in Pages. Keep in mind that pages content is not centered, allowing a little more space between pages for binding.
The document grid corresponds to the 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Pictures should align to the baseline grid. The document grid modules themselves abide by the 1.85:1 ratio exactly as they should. Which means you can build any variation on top of the initial template’s grid with ease! Now that’s cool. The smallest module is 22,895 by 12,376 points, its height matches the document body text’s leading.
You can always hide the baseline grid and/or the document grid for clarity. (View > Grids & Guides > Show Baseline Grid & Hide Baseline Grid). You need the Courier font installed on your machine to use this template to the fullest.
This template will save you time and help you design beautiful presentations.
