The storyboard frames from Carte D’or epitomise what a storyboard should be. Framing is key and time here should be taken. I use minimum line work and rely on colour to show mood in the scenes, a bit like a cinematographer. In film Roger Deakins is an excellent example and has created some fantastic atmosphere through using lighting on the films he’s worked on. I also use a limited colour palette to create harmony through the sequence of frames.


I’m always working to tight deadlines but try to build in time to give myself a break, that way I can re-look at the work with a fresh eye. This gives me a valuable chance to tweak and improve.
