View Full Version : Looking for good storyboard examples

05-09-2002, 09:06 PM
I am looking for good storyboarding examples / galleries. I have to do a small storyboard for a school assignment, and i'd like to see some *good* storyboards for movies. I never did a storyboard before.

Well, I used to do storyboards professionally for Cartoon Network ... year and a half ...

If you want, post up some rough thumbs of what you have in mind and I can give you some feedback ...

I'm sure once I do, others will join in and help you out ...

Subject of Storyboard is : "From Brussels to Lille in 38 minutes". Don't ask me what this is, my teacher gave this to all students.

Those are nice illustrations ... great compositions ...

But storyboards need to be a series of connected images ...

What I'll do for ya is post the very first stage of storyboarding ...

The thumbnail drawings ....

These are verrrry loose and verrry rough shot compositions of your film project ...

Literarlly, each panel should take about five to ten seconds to scribble out ...

And there is a reason for this, believe me ....

But if you have any rough ideas, please post them up ... as well as a thematic style and cinematic pace you might have in mind ...

The green forms with the light in the middle is wrongly posted..it should be a seperated thread. As for now i dont have any clue what i have to do further for the storyboard. The Subject is so dull

The Final Fantasy DVD has the whole movie done with storyboards. Its damn cool. They are so rough, but get the point across. The book is a must have as well.

A really good ref site is :

To skip ahead check out this PDF featuring storyboarding (2mb):

Actually, I must wholeheartedly agree ...

This is a great place to start ... it's like required reading for all boarders ....

But if you keep your artwork rough, and loose, and quick, it can be a lot of fun ....

Almost like gesturing all your actors into the scenes ...

(ooh ... that is, if you like gesture drawing .....)

yeah i agree with al about the nice pictures but storyboarding being sequential. it's kind of hard to say though because some toryboarding for movies, directors only want a few shots of the scene like you have. others and also for animation storyboarding is almost like a rough layout of shots and camera positioning almost exactly like what footage would look like and the main posing and action.

i was a director for sony animation for about 4 years and thats how most of the animation industry works for sure. i think the "prince of egypt" dvd also has storyboards in them along with pencil tests.

hope that helped a bit :)
