"Well, I'm back into animation in the New Year, finishing a cartoon started 15 years ago. Paraphrasing that Led Zeppelin song..."Does anyone remember DRAWING?" -GREG DUFFELL from the comments on his timing lecture notes a few months back.
layout an' posin' for shorty mcshort shorts,
kickin' it old school with scene folders and peg bars.
f*ck cintiqs. why would you pay 3 grand to SIMULATE 10 cent paper? sure scanning is a pain in the ass but the result is better, isn't it? If you do drawings on 8.5" X 11" you can sheetfeed it into a desktop scanner. Or full size paper with a digital camera, why not?
drawings have a SOUL, viva la pencil!
too bad about the whole tree killing thing, but at least we are making wee ones laugh, unlike the pentagon.
Storyboards are NOT layouts.(on average) THAT'S whats wrong with flash shows. no individuality scene to scene.

P.P.S.> the best storyboard "software" is post-its.It's real world CTRL-Z.
