Free storyboard template for 16:9 (1.77:1) aspect ratio films (PDF)

If you need to draw a storyboard in 16:9 (1.77:1) aspect ratio on paper, you can use this free PDF template.

This template has two DIN A4 horizontal sheets with five frames per page, ready to use, awaiting you to draw.


  • The first column indicates the number of your cuts.
