Storyboarding – Simplifying Interactive Media

Storyboard artist film is an essential tool that can be utilised in advertising, animation, and graphic filmmaking. For individuals with little to no training, the storyboarding process can appear very daunting and difficult to know where to begin. The process of storyboarding has been in existence since the early 1930s, and ever since this time has been used as a tool for preparation by individuals in the process of graphic animation and design.

Having the opportunity to plan out, or storyboard, a concept for graphic design or animation is an incredibly valuable means�to ensure the final concept is as polished and made as professional as possible. Taking the original creative concept and putting pen to paper allows designers the opportunity to showcase their creative process and progress to aid in the overall design. It is imperative to take time as a designer to plan film, video and animation through a storyboard layout as this allows for the clear conveyance of ideas. However, it is not necessary that storyboards be exceptionally detailed, but imperative that the manner in which designers can articulate and communicate their designs to others is clear and concise. This is particularly relevant for designers who are acting on a freelance basis and wish to show their creative process and ideas to clients in an easy and effective manner.

Designers commonly visualise end projects that include many interactive elements, occurring throughout the duration of that particular design. These projects and designs are intricate in nature, and can prove difficult to articulate to clients exactly how they should expect the design to come together, in its final appearance. To reassure clients that their project, whether that be animation, film or video, will come together accordingly, storyboarding allows for the visualisation seen through the designer’s eyes to be channelled and transferred through to the client. Various layers and sequences can be illustrated easily through the process of storyboarding, allowing clients to see the proposed outline and timing involved in each of the separate sequences.

When a designer is showcasing their design plan and concept to clients through the use of storyboarding, it is crucial to show the visualisation of the idea in such a manner that allows for the general feel of that idea to be conveyed. Storyboarding should not take away from the design or animating process, and the time spent preparing a storyboard should reflect this. It is not uncommon or unprofessional for the storyboarding process to be completed relatively quickly.
