A storyboard is a place to plan out a visual story in two dimensions. The first dimension is time: what happens first, next, and last. The second is interaction: how the audio – the voiceover narrative of reader’s story and the music – interacts with the images or video. In addition, a storyboard is also a notation of where and how visual effects such as transitions, animations, or compositional organization of the screen will be used. Professional filmmakers use the storyboard as a critical production management tool, saving countless hours of experimentation by avoiding non-essential material. Storyboarding in the film world is a high art, bringing to life a vision of a scene. The art of film storyboarding has taught anyone working on a story one important lesson: planning on paper will save the enormous expense of time, energy, and money when it comes time to produce readers work.
