Story Artists transform a written script into the particular visual language of an animated film. Every story artist will draw different scenes or sequences of the script - bringing humor and specificity to the words on the page. The basic elements of storyboards show camera angles, sequence staging, and most importantly adding humor and character to the story. The Story Artist interns should be pursuing an animation related degree and have storyboarding experience on a project.
