Create your own Western themed Movie Trailer in 30 seconds or less with a whiteboard and dry erase marker! (Whiteboard $3 at Walmart and Dry Erase marker $2). You do this by recording yourself drawing pictures on your whiteboard, erasing them, then drawing more images to create a video. You end up editing the video by speeding it up and using a “voice over” of yourself to explain what’s going on in your shots.

1. Plan your drawing. Try to sketch it out a bit or plan before in your head.

2. Get everything set up, put your whiteboard on a table and hold your camera from a higher platform facing down as it records your whiteboard drawings.

3. Turn on the camera and start drawing! You don't have to worry about drawing fast because you'll edit the video later.

4. After you’re finished drawing, turn off the camera and import the video into your software of preference. Such as iMovie, or any software.

5. Use your video editing software to flip the video (if needed), crop out the edges of the whiteboard, increase the speed of the video, such as a speed of 8x, and add a recording of your voice over the finished product.

Dry Erase Storyboard

Hey everyone, here’s my storyboard that I created for a short modern western movie. The time period that I imagined it being in was the early 70s, so not exactly modern, but not ancient. The original clip that I made was 36 minutes long. Obviously, this was super long. Nobody …
