I create storyboards for most video productions I work on, and sometimes even use them for the preparation of photoshoots.

Storyboards are the first step in visualizing a story, they are a great way of visually developing a script or idea and are a great means of communication between crew and client.

Color schemes take it one step further and serve as a guideline for moods and coloration, these are mostly used when working on an animation.
