So What is a Storyboard?

A storyboard is the blueprint for your production whether that production is an animation, a video game or live action. So even though a storyboard may appear time consuming at first glance, in fact it's what's going to save your production time, money and resources. By visually mapping out your production you'll be able to see if your story has a good flow. You'll be able to see if it's missing scenes or in fact if there are scenes that are unnecessary and in the end that's much cheaper than getting an entire casting crew or getting an entire team of animators to produce scenes that will only end up on the cutting room floor.
