Story artists create visual representations of the actions within the script.

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.
