Visual Storytelling: Storyboarding

A storyboard is a sequence of comic-like illustrations and written text used to tell a story and communicate the visual elements of the story. The process of storyboarding was developed by Walt Disney Studios in the 1930’s, and continues to be used today by animators, game developers, and visual artists.
