It doesn’t matter if you’re shooting a feature film, a TV show or a commercial… They all require a lot of people, a whole lot of clear communication, and it all has to come together for the project to merely work… much less shine.

When you’re on set, you need to get everyone on the same page quickly and efficiently, and there’s no better way than with FrameForge’s Data-Rich Storyboards™.

These unique Data-Rich Boards show the shots you’ve planned, but also add all the real-world camera information needed to shoot them, literally turning them into a blueprint for your shoot. This lets all your departments work more independently, with less trouble-shooting, fewer time-consuming consultations and more time for everyone—you especially—to do what they do best.

When you think about storyboarding…

  • Do you want to be able to see the frame from the placement of a physical camera?
  • Do you think of it as a creative and inspiring process?
  • One you know will dramatically streamline your shoot?
  • And one which will save you time & money, while helping you produce your very best work?

Because FrameForge Users do. Expect more from your storyboards!

What makes FrameForge Previz Studio so dramatically different from every other storyboarding process out there?

The answer is very straightforward: FrameForge Previz Studio's award-winning design uniquely solves the right problem, which isn’t how to draw the best storyboard, but is instead how to most effectively prepare to shoot the best project you possibly can.

It does this by having you prep your storyboard shots not by drawing or using clip-art as other processes do, but instead by using its easy-to-use, optically accurate Virtual Film Studio™.

The benefits of this approach are dramatic in the key areas of creativity, problem-solving, communi­ca­tion, cost-savings and improved final results.


FrameForge Interface

FrameForge Previz Studio At a Glance

  • Fast and intuitive professional storyboard software for film, television, commercial and other film or video projects
  • Turns your computer into an easy-to-use Virtual Film Studio designed for the filmmaker. No drawing, animation or specialized computer skills needed!
  • Produces unique Data-Rich Storyboards™ that will demonstratively save your production time and money, while inspiring you to be more creative

FrameForge’s interface was designed to let filmmakers focus on being filmmakers and, in fact, Zack goes on to say that “FrameForge gives me the tools to create that world I need in a speedy and comprehensive way with an easy-to-use and friendly interface.

Frame Forge Data Rich Storyboard

FrameForge’s Data-Rich Storyboards are unique in the industry, because they aren’t just abstract images of what you’d like a shot to look like, they are literally a visual blueprint of your shooting plan with a wealth of information for your cast and crew that no other boards can match.

And what’s more, you know that you’ll be able to physically shoot every single shot you’ve planned, because you’ve already done it in FrameForge’s Virtual Film Studio and ironed out any problems you would have otherwise had to deal with during the shoot itself, saving you significant time and money on set.

FrameForge users routinely credit the software with inspiring their best work, helping their shoots go more smoothly, saving them money and helping them convince investors. So, what are you waiting for?

FrameForge Previz Studio Pro provides an extremely powerful, optically accurate 3D worlds in which you will previsualize your film, tv show, commercial or similar project. It can create striking imagery and help you sell your vision to investors, producers or other departments on the project. It can help you solve problems before you get on set, improve communication between departments in ways you never thought possible, and save you time and money in a huge number of ways.

FrameForge Previz Studio Pro has a fully positionable sun and real-time shadows, AND allows you to add multiple lighting sources to a scene, including physical lighting fixtures, practical lights and free floating light sources.

FrameForge Previz Studio Pro allows you to optically match any camera in existence (now or in the future) from super 8 up to the latest IMAX® and HD marvels,and includes both free floating and physical cameras. So, if you want to lay down dolly tracks or see if your equipment is going to fit into a tight corner without the end of a jib clipping a wall, you can with FrameForge Previz Studio Pro. 

Finally, there is another edition of FrameForge Previz Studio called Stereographic 3D and, as you probably guessed from the name, the Stereographic 3D edition adds the ability to prep shoots using stereographic rigs with the ability to view it in real-time stereographic 3D on-screen as you work using virtually any standard stereo display technology from anaglyph glasses with ANY screen, to side-by-side, checkerboard, alternating lines, or quad-buffered… and it even supports HD-SDI so you can drive a cinema projector real-time if you like. Use fully customizable 3D rigs, control your depth for your target screen size, and take control of the new medium that’s sweeping the face of the entertainment world.
