the essentials of translating one's vision onto paper, from the rough sketch to the
finished storyboard. Over 100 illustrations from the author's and other storyboard
artists' work illuminate the text throughout. Exercises at the end of each chapter
help students to develop essential drawing and visualizing skills.

of storyboarding, such as framing, placement of figures, and use of camera angles.
