Storyboards can be the perfect way to communicate your cinematic ideas. But every once in a while, presentations need that extra power that only animatics can bring. Early sketches are often the first steps in bringing a script to life. They help filmmakers, TV producers and advertisers plan what a story will look like on the screen.
