We have all seen animated movies that have some pretty elaborate scenes with lots of action, and we know that all that action takes an entire team of artists to create. But in order to work as a team, the artists have to all have a clear understanding of what the scene is supposed to look like.


In today’s lesson, I will teach you about storyboarding, the process that animation teams use to show their ideas to each other and plan out how they are going to animate a scene. This is where we really get into story telling with our characters. I will show you how to come up with a short scene for your character and plan out the action using storyboards. You’ll get to learn the same methods the pros use when preparing scenes for animation and I will show you how to use different types of staging to make your audience feel different emotions in the scene.


Some principles you will learn about storyboarding in this lesson are:

▪ What is a storyboard and why is it important in the process of animation?

▪ Different types of staging and when to use each to add emotion to your animations

▪ How to plan before you animate to make your job as an artist easier
