Everything starts with an inception of idea, a thought or theme. After initial ideation the artist can hunt around for ideas or information that will help to build the body of the story to be presented.
The artist needs to think about how many visuals can be covered in the estimated time. The more detailed the visuals are the more time it consumes, so an effective plot is one which is simplistic yet beautiful and has powerful visuals. A proper beginning and an end is decided so that the story can be effectively told.
Since it’s a visual art so storyboard visuals are framed in such a way that the story can be understood mostly be seeing the visual one after other rather than depending much on sound. Being a continuous act its ephemeral in nature, so the artist need to plan the visual in such a way that within few strokes on hand one visual get change to another and soon maintaining the beauty ,thereby Progressing in the story.
