Script to Screen: Storyboard

After I had my script crafted out, I went on to do the storyboard to get a clearer picture for my animation. With this, I can start experimenting in Premiere Pro to determine if the camera movements that I have within this story works.

After I looked at this storyboard and read my script again, I realised I missed one shot which is the zookeeper looking at his watch before walking out of shot. It is a shot that should be inserted between frame 13-14,  21-22 and 28-29.

Having the script has actually helped me to realise my error and I will make amendments to my storyboard.


  1. Hey Ayunie, I can already see from looking at this storyboard that you're not yet showing us what your character's are thinking - for example, close-ups of faces that show scheming/thinking/reactions. I don't think you've got enough panels in there - for example, the silhouette fighting scene - as this is an action shot, shouldn't you exploring that a bit more dynamically? Don't get me wrong - it's great to get this structure down - but is it very filmic really? Are you really using the full range of camera set-ups - are you adding to your story via camera etc?

    1. Thanks Phil. I was going in for close ups(Just thinking of the camera movement, really) and I didn't consider drawing the expressions. Will do it, pronto. :)
