REVISIT

Go through your video or script again. Especially when it is a bit older.

What's the core of your video - what do you want to tell in the web story?

SCRIPT

Take the core points from the "revisiting"-phase in your web story script.

Create a brief scribble or mock-up to get a feeling for the look of each page.

SCRIPT

Always keep in mind: Convey a single idea per story page.

CREATE

Just a recommendation, before we get to the fun part – the story creation.

Use placeholders for assets to get a feeling for each page.

CREATE

Now  jump into your visual editor of choice.

Create your story page by page with your script.

Optimize your workflow.

YOU ARE ALMOST DONE …
