10 Storyboards From Iconic Movies

10 Storyboards From Iconic Movies My rating: 5 out of 5

A storyboard is a graphical representation of a film or an animation, displayed in sequence to pre visualize how the script would translate on screen. Storyboards are more handy when the script has a lot of  complex visual elements like vfx, choreography, long takes, etc. It can help the director plan the construction of the set, lighting or even camera angles. However, there are directors who do not use storyboards but rather take decisions on the day of shoot, based on their discussions with the actors and crew members. Thanks to DGA Quarterly, we have listed out 10 storyboards of directors who mapped out their scenes onto such cool looking drawings. -NWP
