Atomic Learning offers several tools that could be instrumental in creating a video for this challenge, or for any reason at all.

Storyboard Pro is a FREE shareware program designed to give teachers, students, and home movie makers a tool to plan ahead when creating video projects. It allows moviemakers to plan shots, enter titles and descriptions, enter tips for the videographer or photographer, and much more. StoryBoard Pro is the work of Apple Distinguished Educator Bill Bierden.
