What is a storyboard? [watch video]

A storyboard is a series of drawings depicting the action of a potential sequence to be created through filming or animating. Think of it as the rough comic book version of your story. A storyboard is where we define the general subject matter on screen and block out the basic elements before beginning the illustration process. With the storyboard, we include a description of the onscreen elements and action, as well as the associated voice-over that the viewer will hear.
