now to compare these exmaples of industry storyboards, the following show storyboards i’ ve made myself for which have been created for the story of my final major project ‘The ScruffleBack’.

each storyboard image was created using photoshop and a Wacom Graphics Tablet.

i feel that my storyboards successfully show what is intended from the idea of the scene

here are some examples of storyboards. i feel that each show that universialy, storyboards are intendted as quick drawings that convey the main ideas behind the project in hand and show to the porject leaders how their story will pan out.

from all the storyboard drawings ive seen universial simularities in them. the drawings are always sketchy in appearence, have a quick loose feel about them. this is beceause there is no need to make high quality, high renderd drawings for them, as theyre purpose is so that the director can pre-visualize what his story will look like, and if the dierector needs to make changes (which they probabaly will need too) then too much time would be wasted on making the changes if the artist was using a high qulaity drawing style. with a loose sketchy style, changes can be made quickly and effectively saving the rest of production time and money.

Storyboards are a form of pictoral organisation. a series of illustrations created from a script are shown and displayed in sequence, this is used for the purpose of pre-visualizaton in many industries, these include: film, tv, advertisment, video game, theater and comic books.

requirements for a storyboard artist are as follows:

excellent illustration skills.

the abillity to convey/communicate the message/story of the project via pictoral form.

be able to commincate ideas to other memebers of staff, if need be actually act out the storyboards.

must be able to take directoin and criticism, the director of the project is in charge and you work for them.

good presentation and commincation skills are a must.

from my research so far it seems that a degree is not required to become a stroyboard artsit. butsome sort of training and education in illustration and animation is needed. with this iin mind sotryboarding is a career option open to people from varying walks of life, making competition high.
