Storyboards are ‘road maps’ sketched-up to ensure everybody’s headed in the same place on a creative project. Here’s an example of one I did for Nate Henry before starting the process of animating a music video for his song “Lightly Stepping”.

Nate just reviewed the final animation a couple days ago, and said, “I just want to say once again, great job! The video really sunk in this morning and I can’t say thanks enough. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had someone (besides myself) really bring one of my songs to life visually this well. You got some talent.”

Aside from appreciating his positive comments, I want to share this experience because I think it’s a great example of why a storyboard is so important on a project like this. Communication is key, and with a solid storyboard as a foundation, the only surprise is actually seeing a concept ‘come to life’ with the art of animation.
