Apple Keynote theme ideal for feature film storyboards, with 2.39:1 aspect ratio frames ( similar to 2.35:1 or Scope and sometimes also referred to as 2.40) on DIN A4 landscape format. Flexible layout: chose your desired frame number per page (1, 4, 6, 9, 12, 16, 20, 24, or 36), whether you use text or not, page numbering, scenes, and shot numbers. Some pages have SFX boxes to indicate extra notes for post-production like sound, stunts, and effects.
To create your storyboard, first, add a new slide—in the left area navigator (Add Slide). There are 30 slide masters to choose from; you can change your slide layout (Format > Change Master button) in the right navigation panel (View > Inspector > Format).
Then chose your layout in the left navigator. Whether you use text or not, page, scenes, and shot numbers. You can use the rule of thirds guides to help you reframe your shots (View > Guides & Hide Guides). To make consistent changes to your layout, use the Edit Master Slide button in the right navigation panel. To use pagination, go to Format > Slide Number.
You will find a set of arrows in vector format, located in the last master pages: copy any arrow icon from there and paste it into your document to indicate camera move, movement within the shot, and character’s eyes direction. If you need more icons, you can get them for free here: https://gum.co/storyboard-arrows.
Check the three latest master pages for additional info on how to use the template.
