beginning storyboarding


So this is the beginning of my storyboarding for my new animation. They won't all be drawn in as much as this, but the intro scene has some panning shots of the set, and I'd like to time those out on the drawing first, get a sense of it all.
I think I'd read that for some movies a storyboard will be sync'd to the audio, then as each clip is filmed it's swapped out, until the animation is complete. I'm thinking of trying this way for the piece - right now I see some parts soo clearly, and others not at all - and I found Judder really frustrating in not having the timing near as clear as I'd like. So - going to try this way - it's looking at being around a 3 min piece so should have new drawings soon to start blocking it in!

Story reel or lica reel(?) I think its a good way to go, may save you some trouble down the road...

Leica reel - very cool, hadn't heard that term before! Yah, definitely going that way - I plan to have camera movement in 60-80% of the shots so I definitely need to get a feel for it before I start!
