“[A good artist is] one with imagination and the ability to tell a good story. How well a man draws cuts no ice with me, if what he’s trying to express comes out vague and choppy.” ‐ Jack Kirby
(Sherman cited in Morrow (ED.) 2004, (vol.1) p. 181).

The art of storyboarding with Ridley Scott- "A sophisticated comic strip..."

Hollywood directer Ridley Scott shares some thoughts on storyboarding, including his process, including "thumbnailing".  What I particularly want you to take note of is his comments about light: "Performance of light on objects", and his point on "talking heads".

"Articulate exactly what you're going to do". This is more prevalent as an animator, as you are creating a world from nothing. A blank page or screen. Planning ahead saves time and headaches in production/post production.
