Story artists create visual representations of the actions within the script. They will analyze the character motion and settings within the story and use basic drawings to define framing from shot to shot. The results are subject to change down the line, but these visuals give a roadmap of sorts on what will be happening frame by frame.
In this role you will be working from a script or descriptions to create storyboards for sequences. You will use quick sketches to provide detailed story panels that detail out each scene and the movement happening within them.
• Pitch storyboards to director, head of story, crew, and executives.
• Work with the storyboard director to define staging, pacing, and camera.
• Discover and create innovative ideas with performance, action, and humor.
• Draw storyboards for assigned sequences.
• Revise, edit and modify sketches as many times as needed.

• Strong storytelling abilities that feature character personality, emotion, and movement, acting, and staging.
• Ability to work in a team environment and on deadline.
• Must be open to direction and able to embrace change.
