There’s an important step between ideation and creation for films, comic books, and other mediums that require planning out scenes: making a storyboard.  A storyboard provides an easy-to-interpret breakdown of all included scenes, and may give the production staff further ideas on how to develop the production. Often in advertising, the storyboard can take precedent as key production source ahead of the original screenplay for highly visual projects. Nowadays even small gifs, product explainer videos or Instagram stories need cleverly planned storyboards.
