Movies have many complex complexities that cannot be depicted in a short amount of time, so I use tv storyboard to help make sure my vision is clear and that all the important scenes are defined. I use a number of tools to help me think through my scenes and come up with actionable ideas for my actors. I’ve been experimenting with Storyboard for a while now and wanted to share my findings with you. Hopefully, you find it useful too!
A storyboard is essentially a rough outline for a shot in your movie. It uses the same methodical grid system as a script, but without words. A storyboard helps you know what happens in your movie before the camera even starts running. It’s important to have this before you start writing a scene, so you know where everything stands and what needs to happen next. You can also use a storyboard as an outline for how you would like the movie to end. This might not be the exact way things occur on-screen, but it gives you an idea of how things might end up looking.
When you’re an expert artist, or perhaps even just a budding filmmaker, storyboarding is a crucial part of your creative process. The real magic happens when you get down to the nuts and bolts of the movie you want to make. Today I’m going to break down how to draw (and animate) a simple movie using only free, redeemable movie templates available online. But first, a little backstory…
Movies have become so complex with special effects, sets, and all the other stuff that have to come together to make a movie, that it’s hard to understand where the story begins and what the point is. And the more you try to figure it out, the more it seems like a jumble of disconnected events. And if you try to connect the dots yourself, it becomes even harder to make sense of it all because there are so many moving parts.
