But first, what is a Storyboard?
In a way, this is the illustrated version of the scenario.
The term storyboard is used to visually explain and stage a story. This term is widely used in the world of advertising, film and animation.
It allows you to cut a temporal sequence or sequence plane by synthesizing the main keyframes and planes that compose it.
Once these keyframes are defined, they are assembled on a board composed of 4, 6 or 8 frames as needed. This is an essential step to format an animated concept or a movie. This allows you to precisely define and share your idea, while testing its pace and effectiveness over a given period of time.
The storyboard allows you to define a frame, an intention, a movement, determining the main elements and actions that make up each scene. Using comments and annotations, it allows you to specify details about an action, movement, or state change with easy-to-understand arrows or guides.
You don't have to be a good cartoonist to create an effective storyboard, although it can help, anyone can indulge in it if only to share an intention or idea.
Throughout a project, the storyboard goes through several versions; he is refined little by little, with simplistic drawings, then with volumes to sketch and shape the idea. Then little by little, he tends towards a sharp resemblance of the final project with drawings and representations more and more precise.
