Disney: The Art of Storyboarding

A storyboard is a sequence of images and words drawn together on a page to form a plausible narrative. Storyboards are routinely used in the movie making business to ‘preview’ a movie before a single shot is taken. Not only does a storyboard allow for a dress rehearsal of the final product but by the very fact of being posted on the wall, it elicits early feedback and encourages quick, painless editing, leading to significant savings in time and resources. Disney was a storyboarding freak! A storyboard is an apt metaphor for how we make sense of our own life history. Storyboarding can be used to sense emergent patterns in our own life story and to envision the life experiences that we wish to welcome into our future.
