Storyboard Week – Day 2 – Establishing Shot

Storyboard week continues with the start of a panel-by-panel, page-by-page look at the choices and thought process behind the drawing of this sequence from “The Mighty B!”

If you click on the full-screen button (at the bottom right of the video), it’ll look nice and big!

I’ve received a ton of great questions already, and I want to make sure you know that I’ll be answering every one of them as this series continues. Today’s video doesn’t get further than the first panel, but that’s only because the topic of the establishing shot is so important.

Next storyboarding commentary video:

Please ask any and all questions about the video — or storyboarding in general — in the comments section below. Thanks ^_^ — Sherm

  1. These are great tutorials. Thank you. Are you planning to make your DVD training downloadable?

  3. Hi Sherm,

    Thank you so much for making this DVD!
    I have been looking for a good DVD on Storyboards and I never found anything that could explain me the nuts and bolts. I just found your DVD online yesterday and I’m going to buy it for sure.

    I hope that we will be able to exchange ideas on the trade and are you planning on setting up some sort of Critique forum in order for us to post our boards and get some feedback on them ?

    Thank you for your time.

    Jean Claude De La Ronde,

  4. Hi Jean Claude — I’m glad you like the storyboarding videos ^_^ Thanks!

    I do have an online class that offers a lot of in-depth critiques. The current class is sold out, but there is a much more affordable self-study version available at

    In the meantime, this blog is a place where we can all talk about various aspects of storyboarding. Thanks for joining in the discussion!
