Similar to designing wireframes for a website, storyboarding is an important and crucial pre-production step to any animation or video project. Whenever producing more standalone animations, it will more than likely start with a storyboard. It’s the first step in transforming an idea into something real. When it comes to animation, making large amendments to a half finished animation is time consuming. By producing a storyboard first, we can show visuals early in the process, and any changes can be made quickly and efficiently.
