Creating a Storyboard

Storyboards have been used for ages to demonstrate sequences of events. Coming in all stages of finishedness (it’s a word now), they can take varied forms. Comic strips are an excellent example of really polished finishedness, while others have stick-man finishedness. Storyboards can be used to help figure out camera angles when filming something, but they can also be used to detail the layout of a book – particularly if it’s going to have illustrations.

As part of the development of Chunky Charlie & The Four Fat Fairies, following Step One imagining and writing the story, I suppose Step Two would be to create a storyboard.

The great thing about my storyboard is that it came in VERY handy with Step Three… But you’ll have to stay tuned to find out how.
