I really like this Celtx storyboarding movie making app but I’d like to point out that it appears to be in need of an update because there are some compatibility issues with iOS 7 and 8; for some this has lead to intermittent crashing and a temperamental interface.

This is a great way of fleshing out your ideas in a more visual medium, and you can even import images from your device’s Camera Roll to use as scenes in your storyboard, so if you know the cast you’re working with this could work very well.
