I was just sent a link to an online site that posted an article on why drawn storyboards were obsolete.
A second article countered the argument. Very well, too.
The mindset that 'everything can be done with a computer' is not correct. It's not even something that is worth arguing about. It's a lot cheaper to work out ideas on paper before using an expensive machine to work it up in three dimensions. Why is it necessary to keep restating the obvious?
My colleague John Van Vliet once drew a cartoon showing a ponytailed producer talking to an artist at a computer terminal. The producer says, "And I want my entire project in 3D! It's much better than 2D!"
The artist replies, "Why is it better?"
The producer responds with a beatific smile. "It's got ONE MORE 'D'!"
the artist thinks "Cheer up. Someday geeks will inherit the earth."
John swears that this conversation actually occurred.
Hopefully, the truth will out.
