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.
  • 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

Definition from own experience or research:
Et bildemanus er en tegneserie-aktig, grafisk gjengivelse av et filmmanuskript. Man tegner forskjellige ruter, der en rute oftest tilsvarer én kamerainnstilling.

Example sentence(s):
  • Du skal nå tegne et bildemanus/storyboard. Bildemanuset skal vise hvilke bilder som skal være med i filmen, og i hvilken rekkefølge de skal komme. Hensikten med bildemanuset er å gjøre det enklere å redigere filmen. - mediana  
  • Det er alltid lurt å først tegne de bildene du vil filme. Det gjør du i et bildemanus. - Norskverkstedet  
  • LOKALE KJENNETEGN FOR MÅLOPPNÅELSE Eleven skal kunne... Tegne et bildemanus, redigere og manipulere digitale opptak og ved hjelp av diskusjon reflektere over bruk av egne virkemidler. - Lokal læreplan i Kunst & håndverk  

"Bildemanus" is the Norwegian word for "storyboard". But everyone I know who makes movies, uses the English word. I would say that "storyboard" is an accepted term in the business.
