Hi Chris,
May I add my storyboard artist's view?
The most important reason to storyboard your film is that it forces you to scrutinise your script for how visually it tells the story. This is where you notice that there is a lack of action descriptions, or continuity issues like a bruised face, which would probably have an impact on most subsequent dialogues.
It is one of the last revisions of the script before shooting. It is the first step in the process of taking the story out of the reader's head, into the director's hands (or the director's instructions to the storyboarder).
I'm looking forward to storyboard your feature film ;)

I'd add to that the need for clear eyes and pupils. This tells you where the eyeline is and when you've crossed. It also makes the expression required much clearer in the storyboard.

    About Chris

    I am just like you. Passionate. Crazy mad. For movies that is. Can’t get enough. Watching movies. Making movies. Talking about movies. Drives my girlfriend Lucia nuts! So yep. Passionate, crazy and mad. And yes, I am a little schizo too. Thing is, I love making films as much as I do teaching film making. Hence, Make Film, Teach Film. I have spent my life making films and sharing what I have learned with those who, like me, have been infected with the 'film virus'... I've made three feature films, action thriller ‘The Runner’, serial killer thriller ‘White Angel’ and paranormal horror ‘Urban Ghost Story’. I also co-created and authored The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series, and currently there are six editions! Most recently, I made the multi-award winning and Oscars shortlisted ‘Gone Fishing’. I run film making workshops and my offices are at Ealing Film Studios where I am currently plotting my next big adventure…
