Story boarding

The first step in creating a computer animated sequence is story boarding. After the script has been finalized, Drawings are made to illustrate the types of shots needed to tell the story. A storyboard looks similar to a comic strip except that It is designed more to explore camera angles and frame compositions.

When creating story boards, the artist needs to make decisions on what camera moves will communicate the correct mood for the piece while still remaining clear to the audience what is going on.
