Storyboarding is a standard method for visual summarisation of shots in film and video preproduction. Reverse storyboarding is the generation of similar visualisations from existing footage. The key attributes of preproduction storyboards are identified, then computational techniques that extract corresponding features from video, render them appropriately, and composite them into a single storyboard image are developed. The result succinctly represents background cornposition, foreground object appearance and motion, and camera motion. For a variety of shots, it is shown that the visual representation conveys all the essential elements of shot composition.
