The Storyboarding Playlist
It doesn’t matter what you call it, but the process of story boarding our work is critical to telling the right story, in the right order. If you don’t plan your design, you may end up with a story scramble, reminiscent of the mixed up fairy tales of our childhood.
Screen writers use story boards to tell stories. Why should we be different? A story board helps guide the creative process and provide a logical framework to deliver content and evoke a response at the right time.
With Kristen Hayden Safdie, Katie Stroud, and Toddi Norum
