English term or phrase: storyboard
Definition from The Documentary Site:
Sketches that show how a scene might look when it is filmed.

Example sentence(s):
  • Some storyboard artists can get across information with only a stick figure however, being able to draw anything from any angle and in perspective is a huge benefit in being able to "simulate" what the camera will see and more efficiently communicate the ideas that the director wants to get across. CinemATL
  • Before you create your film storyboards, you have to perform certain tasks and make certain decisions. First, begin by evaluating your screenplay and picturing it in terms of separate shots that can be visually translated into individual storyboard panels. Dummies.com
  • Some directors were known to have had very elaborate collections of storyboards prepared for their movies, feeling it was essential to have most aspects thought out in advance of shooting. The American Institute for Conservation

कथा-रूपांकन


Definition from own experience or research:
फ़िल्मांकन से पूर्व कहानी को चित्रों के माध्यम से रूपायित करना।

Example sentence(s):
  • अभय ने ब्लैकफ्राइडे के ब्लास्ट सीन के लिए कथा-रूपांकन (स्टोरी बोर्ड) भी तैयार किया था। - jagran/cinemaaza  

Explanation:
सामान्यतः स्टोरी बोर्ड के लिए अंग्रेज़ी शब्द ही प्रयोग में लाया जाता है । पर इसमें डिज़ाइनिंग शामिल होने के कारण हिन्दी में इसे कथा-रूपांकन कहा जा सकता है।

रेखांकन


Definition from own experience or research:
सिनेमा में कोई दृश्य फिल्माए जाने के बाद कैसा दिखेगा, इसकी कल्पना करना और उसे काग़ज पर उकेरना रेखांकन कहलाता है।

Example sentence(s):
  • सत्यजित राय ने अपनी सारी 28 फ़ीचर फ़िल्मों की पटकथाएँ विस्तार से ख़ुद लिखी थीं. एक फ़िल्म की पटकथा लिखने के लिए वो दो या तीन नोटबुक का इस्तेमाल करते थे. इन नोटबुकों के पन्नों पर वे अपने नोट तो लिखते ही थे साथ ही सीन के हिसाब से वे इसमें ख़ुद रेखांकन भी किया करते थे. फ़िल्म बन जाने के बाद ये नोटबुक उनके घर पर पड़ी रहती थी. - BBC  

Explanation:
मेरे विचार से रेखांकन अंग्रेज़ी के शब्द "स्टोरीबोर्ड" के साथ पूरा न्याय करता है। दरअसल स्टोरीबोर्ड से किसी दृश्य का एक खाका तैयार किया जाता है। प्राय: ये स्कैच ही होते हैं। इनके द्वारा महत्वपूर्ण दृश्यों को रेखांकित कर लिया जाता है ताकि फिल्माते समय पूरी यूनिट के पास एक साझी कल्पना पहले से उपलब्ध रहे। इसीलिए रेखांकन अधिक उपयुक्त है।
अंग्रेज़ी शब्द में 'स्टोरी' है तो यह आवश्यक नहीं कि हिंदी अनुवाद करते समय 'कथा' या 'कहानी' शब्द का प्रयोग अपरिहार्य हो।
किसी गीत को फिल्माने से पहले भी उसके स्टोरीबोर्ड यानी रेखांकन तैयार किए जा सकते हैं।
