FrameForge is so innovative,
we’ll change your definition of a storyboard

Traditionally, a storyboard was a sequence of hand drawings that were designed to help a filmmaker organize and plan their shots — with some directions and dialogue noted.

Most storyboard software programs merely takes this process one step further – and the output is simply that: a storyboard that consists of clip-art.

But Emmy® Award-winning FrameForge® does so much more than just simplify the storyboarding process; it helps filmmakers previsualize their work by creating an optically accurate, Virtual Film Studio® right on the computer. In fact, compare our products with any other storyboard software and you’ll immediately see the difference yourself.

Optically Match Any Camera in Existence

Whether you’re creating interiors or exteriors, you’ll be able to prep virtually any room, location or environment, and view it through a virtual camera that can optically match any camera in existence from Super 8 up to the latest IMAX® and HD marvels. But that’s just the beginning.

With FrameForge you’ll improve your preproduction process far beyond what even the most gorgeously drawn storyboard could, saving you thousands of hours of time and money.
