Just like I said in this ask, you should look at the kind of storyboards being made right now. TV, feature, and game animation all have their own styles of storyboarding. Studios, too. Certain things you’ll need for it no matter where or what you work on, though:

  • Quick drawing ability
  • Being able to deal with having 100+ of your boards thrown out and needing to be redone
  • Knowledge of composition
  • Knowledge of story/writing
