A well-designed storyboard will dramatically improve the chances of your project getting off the ground and help prevent time-consuming and expensive mistakes when the production process begins.

This course will teach you the techniques required to produce professional-looking stills storyboards and video storyboards (animatics). This course runs as a private course so feel free to adapt the course content to your exact requirements if you wish.
