Before beginning any animation, you must plan out your work so that you can get an idea of what you would like to do. From scene to scene, you should plan the idea out first.
Here's the storyboard for my Rube Goldburg Animation.
This project is called "Tease". It's vaguely about a boy being bullied by a girl who happens to be in his class. She throws rocks and books at the boy's head.
Ultimately in the end, the girl gets what's coming to her, and she get's sent to jail. I came up with the idea in a moment, and created this story board over the course of 2 days.
