What Alfred Hitchcock says about storyboard close-up shots:
“You see, it is very essential that you know ahead of time something of the orchestration. In other words, image size. What I mean by orchestration is this. Take the close-up.

It’s like in music — the brass sounding loud before you need it. Now, I’ll give you an example where a juxtaposition of the image size is very important.
