    I’m not sure if this is the right board to ask, if not just tell me.

    I have never done animation before, I’m used to ”real” movies, where my poor drawing skill isn’t that much important since details (like how much steps a person do in a scene) can be overlook, and the camera angle is the most important thing (mostly). But I’m trying to do a storyboard for a short test movie and I’m asking myself how much details people usual put in such board.

    I’m sorry I’m rambling again but I’m not English and I just can’t ask right away what I want to know. Let me try again.

    If you use 15 frames/sec, will your draw every frames or just the start and the end of the scene, like I usually do in a ”normal” movie?

    I hope you understood… :? Thanks! 8-)

    Yeah, storyboards never show every frame of an animation (unless it is a very obvious reason, like showing a frame-by-frame effect). Otherwise it would be hundreds or maybe even thousands of pages. Instead, you divide your movie into reasonable sections, and just draw the beginning of each of those. In other words, its pretty much the same as a normal movie.

    That’s what I thought, but while in production, you never get lost?

    I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten lost. I find animation very boring.
    The creative part is fun. The mechanical part is the pits. I will often be 1/2
    way through a scene and forget what hand was moving up and what was going
    down. Thank goodness for the ability to look at the few previous frames to
    refresh my old geezer mind!

    WHAT?!?! That’s just about the only thing I find fun about lego movies. Making up a story, and sometimes even building the set is boring, and hard. But actually animating is awesome. (I usually don’t like recording my voice or putting the frames together either.)

    Yeah, storyboarding is one of the most important things to do when making a film. The worst thing you can do is to make it up as you go. Storyboarding is going to be a big part of our (Chemical Productions and I) film (once we finish the plot and script). They dont have to be too detailed as everyone is not a good artist, but just enough to help you get the point of what you want to see and where you want your camera to move.:wink

    Best of Luck!,

    Me too FLL… the most fun is writing the script and then producing the final product to me. The animation is a forced issue for me to deal with… and yes I’m old too.. maybe that’s it??

    I’ve never actually storyboarded anything with drawings, just use the notes in the script and the original picture in my mind. Maybe that would help motivate me or keep my mind organized more.
