ImagineFX - - Artist Insight The Art Of Storyboarding -

Sto­ry­board artists are the di­rec­tor, writer, editor, ac­tor and cin­e­matog­ra­pher of their se­quences and must be skilled in all. Read­ing books on these sub­jects is es­sen­tial, but to master it you must prac­tise it. You have to get com­fort­able with pro­duc­ing hun­dreds of draw­ings ev­ery week for the du­ra­tion of a pro­duc­tion, many months and of­ten years. You must sup­press ego – draw­ings are func­tional and dis­pos­able. They will never be seen by an au­di­ence and se­quences are rou­tinely re­drawn or ‘fixed’ by oth­ers. It’s the ideas that count and that make it to the screen. Film-mak­ing is a col­lab­o­ra­tive art form and the re­ward is the fi­nal film. Though there’s still a thrill to be had if a gag of yours makes it to the screen!
