A screenwriting technique

A graduate student of mine has embraced the note card / cork board method for outlining a film story. It's a technique that works well for writers whose methodology involves pre-writing planning, which I call "tree people" (as opposed to "forest people", who are sink-or-swim writers, of which there are many, figuring things out on the run). She sent me this image of her work in progress. I love it.
