The video storyboard is the flip side of the video script. It’s the embodiment of this written script into the basic visuals of the video. In essence, it’s the blueprint, the visual plan, by which an animated video is created. While the script is where we write and validate the spoken narration, the storyboard is a sketched version of each scene in the video. It’s goal is to validate the action on the screen and ensure that the visual storyline effectively portrays and enhances the project.
