Learn How to Storyboard from Disney and SpongeBob Storyboard Artist Sherm Cohen

How can you do what you love and make a great living at the same time?

Be a Storyboard Artist!

Even though jobs are quickly vanishing for traditional animators and newspaper/magazine cartoonists, Storyboard artists are in high demand -- more than ever!

Even the slickest CG-Animated movie uses hand-drawn storyboards. Look at any of the “Art of...” books about Pixar, Dreamworks, Sony and Disney movies and you’ll see that storyboards are still drawn like they’ve always been...

And that just for starters -- As special-effects-driven blockbusters continue to dominate the box-office, storyboard artists are constantly needed to provide the “blueprints” and pre-visualization art those movies require. Action movies, video games, TV series and even commercials are hiring storyboard artists every day.

And You Already Have Half of What You Need

You already know how to draw, but the specific storytelling strategies, technical requirements and the specific challenges of the storyboarding format remain a mystery.Do you know how to do a hook-up? When to use a truck-out? an x-dissolve, a banana-pan or how to avoid a jump-cut?

I had never even heard of those things when I started -- In these days of tight deadlines and even tighter budgets, on-the-job training doesn’t even exist anymore. When the studios need a storyboard artist, they don’t have the time or resources for training; they want someone that demonstrate today that they’ll hit the ground running and start pumping out killer storyboards from the first day on the job...

Storyboard artist and illustrator Meredith Randazzo"I've made it through three of your DVDs so far- I watched 10, 1, and 2 (I couldn't help skipping to the end).

Really, REALLY great content! Pretty much anything you would want for television storyboarding.

After I watched #1 I was like, "That was great, but how can he expand on this for 8 more DVDs?" and then I watched #2. Wow. So simple, and yet...not. I'm really excited to start putting this info to work. I like your teaching style!"

Meredith Randazzo

"Super clear, easy to follow, no-nonsense.

I already got some great nuggets outta it. Thanks Sherm, you're a champ and a really nice dude. Keep up the great work!"

"They were
a great help"

I finally had a chance to review and digest all the 10 DVDs and found the contents awesome.
Since I am mostly doing storyboards now they were a great help specially the one on thumbnails.
Chapters on screen direction and perspective were great too. Of course I had been exposed to the basics before but overall I found them very informative and loaded with very important tips. I plan to show them to my storyboard crew here too.
