I'll be applying to the UCLA film program as one of my transfer possibilities fairly soon, and what they have as a requirement for the application is a creative writing sample. I'm not particularly good at writing screenplays so I thought it would be best that I try sending in a storyboard, as well as some pictures of the set, for the short that I'm working on right now. My question is, is there a preferred storyboard format in the industry or maybe even just by UCLA's school/professors? All up until this point, I've just been printing out simple storyboard pages that I've found online.

Generally, the ones I get have lines on the side (right) and the images on the left in little boxes. Or, you can just do it as a full page across with some description below (which I personally prefer).
For what it's worth, though creative writing needn't be a screenplay, normally. I did poetry when I applied to colleges, as that's what I was better at.. well that and writing bs papers, but i figured that would come later on ;)
