Storyboards don’t have to be extremely-detailed but when you are pitching an idea to a client, it helps. The most important thing is to understand where the animation is and to solve technical problems before you run into them. I like to draw arrows and show the movement of the camera and action which helps save time in After Effects because I know what I’m trying to do. Then I can focus on being creative. Also when working with others they know what to expect and it’s easier to collaborate.
- Present your idea, high-quality stuff may get you THE job
- Plan your animation before starting to keep you on track
- Solve technical problems, rather than waiting til you hit one
- Save time if the concept is rejected…
I’ve been busy all week working on some projects, I can’t really talk about it but… I’m almost done, and that’s good news.
