View Full Version : story bord help

06 June 2004, 02:47 AM

Hello, I was wanting to get some feed back from you PROS!!
I am not sure how story boards are done, so I fell back to my comic book work.
Any thoughts on the story boards, and or model?

Hello Crow

The first thing that I would do is to draw the storyboards at the same aspect ratio that you will be doing your animation in.

Secondly, I would number them on the top left of the board. ie, 1:1 for scene 1 board 1.

Third. You should write your notes and camera angles of to the right side of your board on not right on them. Use abbreviations like Cu or MCU for Close up and Medium Close up.

You can use arrows to show where your character is moving and also if the camera is moving.

Try not to move the camera unless there is a reason to.

Oh and if your camera is following your character you can draw the board really lond so that you can show the starting and ending position of your character. I hope this helps.

I have a great book that you might want to purchase from amazon.

It is "film directing: Shot by Shot" by Steven d. Katz
isbn: 0-941188-10-8

I am currently in a storyboarding class and we are using this book as the textbook for the class.
