dinoraye asked: Hi Stu! I was just wondering, what program do you use to storyboard? I'm having trouble figuring out a program I can board efficiently in...
toon boom storyboard pro! Pricey but they have sales around the holidays - definitely what most TV productions use these days. photoshop’s also great, though very different for boarding than ToomBoom. Flash is doable, but not ideal IMO.

Here’s a short storyboard exercise from this creeper I saw from the elevator this morning. When I rough my storyboards I try to keep them about this clean. Combining the looseness and clarity of gesture, while being selective about the most important information to draw your eye is key to making rough-boards readable and also saving time for cleanup later. Keep in mind, it takes a LOT of drawing/understanding to break things down simply like this — so don’t be lazy and learn a lot about drawing first kids!!
Here’s an essay by Rad which better explains this kind of drawing: http://radhowto.blogspot.com/2010/01/drawing-for-storyboards.html
