Storyboards are a large comic strip of an interactive or animated idea that allows designers to visualise scenes.
By mapping out plans beforehand, designers are able to find potential problems or changes that should be made.
They highlight changes, movements, points of interest, navigation, types of shots (short, medium, long), and overlay graphics. This tool helps designers brainstorm the best possible outcome for their project, and allow room for improvements before the final piece is done.
Below is an example of a storyboard on how to make toast.
