The project manager at the meeting communicates the major goals that needs to be achieved and highlights the targets. Apart from the usual discussion on the technical points of the project, the agenda of the meeting may also include a debate about the target audience and the support coming from each division.
Script Writing :-
Following the initial meeting, the personnel in charge of the background story create a brief script or an outline of a story. In other words most multimedia projects have a story behind them. The text hits the principal points of the project. Here the script writers work over time and use language appealing to the audience where jargon, tone of the lingo and the overall style are at play.

Multiple pieces of audio, imagery, video, text for voice overs and titles on the screen usually form the part of a multimedia project. Story boarding bonds well with everything together; including story board panel for a scene including a sketch of the visual elements, the voice over and title text or any other production notes that goes into smart story weaving that would enthrall the audience.
