This workshop is about creating storyboards. A storyboard is a number of drawings, descriptions and annotations that help organising a story visually.
A storyboard is helpful in establishing a number of steps within a story. It will support you in organising the elements and give your story a clear focus.
Storyboards are used in a number of fields and industries:
- film and TV
- web design
- game design
- other multimedia fields
Storyboarding a film is quite different from storyboarding a website.
Storyboards can be created using software or it can be created with pen and paper.
