I like SIMPLE storyboards. Over elaborated storyboards, with arrows, direction lines and camera instructions look like bullshit to me. I always draw very simple frames and shoot them with the right timing and minimal camera moves. Very often I use these drawings, enlarged, as rough layouts and colour keys.
I believe in simplicity and spontaneity in the very "unspontaneous" art of animation.
These are the opening scenes for a short I made for Paul McCartney in 1998. "The Light Comes From Within".
