How to storyboard
Storyboards are the way that animators share their ideas about how a scene will be shot. Before any animation is done, before any voices are added, before a computer even gets switched on, there is a storyboard. Notice that for every time the camera turns off and then back on/changes positions, a new storyboard panel is drawn. Also, if there is a lot of action within one take, you may make multiple storyboard panels. When you create your storyboard, be sure to include color, number your panels, include important information on the blanks (shot type and what's happening in the picture), the appropriate symbols for camera movement, and a picture that represents the shot (if the shot is going to be a close-up, then draw a close-up, if it's going to be a Dutch tilt, then draw a Dutch tilt).
