Creating well-drawn, motivated fi gures that kinetically move in an interesting way through the 3D space of the fi lm is one of the primary jobs of the storyboard artist. A fi nished storyboard covering all the basic shots tells the story and is an invaluable aid to the entire preproduction team. Vivid images from a strong director and a storyboard illustrating their robust style complements the intensity of the action and the raw emotions of the characters. The shots from important fi lms in this chapter demonstrate how the dynamic placement of fi gures within the continuity of the storyboard frames has to be rendered simply yet effectively. Indications of sets constructed or actual buildings and locations used must be illustrated in the storyboard artist’s renderings, remembering that sets are background for the action.
