In my first post on storyboards, I mentioned that that can serve a number of different purposes from a production tool to a way to get people excited about your project. I recently posted an example of some storyboards I drew just before shooting—and the videos that they inspired. This article looks at the other side, using storyboards long before you ever hope to shoot to help advance a project so that it can get funding.
Any time you’re trying to sell someone on backing your vision—whether it be for ten or twenty bucks on Kickstarter or millions from a film fund or high net-worth individual—you want to create a vision of that film for your backers—even though, for the moment, it that still exists only in your head. You need to help people visualize the film you would make. If you can help them visualize it—and if it’s worthy once you have—then you have a better chance of getting their support.
