lanning any kind of moving visual creation requires a script and sketches to depict the different scenes. Just like thumbnail layouts, these images will help define content and composition for everyone involved with the project. Accompanying the drawn frames on a storyboard are spaces to include supportive dialogue in addition to any necessary descriptions of special effects.
A black and white storyboard is enough
to convey most ideas.
So long as there is someone to explain the action, black and white drawings are plenty to present the merits of any idea. They also serve well as a guide during the working production of a tv, video and/or movie creation. I particularly like the absence of color because there is much less implication that the art needs to be duplicated in any way. Thus, participants can creatively adapt to the actual physical characteristics of a real set without being fettered by an unrealistic storyboard interpretation.
Color should be used when the boards must stand on their own, without a presenter. Or when the audience is extraordinarily large. In this case, a little extra polish may be needed to hold everyone's attention. For on-the-job reference purposes, black and copies can always be made later.
