The Storyboard Artist Review By Erin V.

Along with writing, I’ve always had an interest in art and drawing as well.  Storyboards have long fascinated me in the way that they map out films both with simplicity and precision.  Unfortunately for those interested in the art, the behind-the-scenes nature of storyboards means that they are rarely seen, making it hard to learn about their elements.

There also aren’t all that many books widely available on the art of storyboarding, (when compared relatively to other creative fields), much less one I’ve read with such a simple overview on the world of freelancing.  Covering (as the title suggests) the worlds of advertising, film, and TV, this is a comprehensive guide for those just starting out in the field.  I’d also consider this worth a read for those looking to hire storyboard artists – it’s always good to know exactly what is reasonable to request of creative professionals.  With ample drawings and examples, The Storyboard Artist is a good all around look at what the job of a storyboard artist entails, (on both the creative and business side of things), and is worth checking out.
