    Lyndon Ruddy explains what a storyboard is and what tools and tricks storyboarders use to tell a story. He showed me what it takes to lay out a sequence all the way from thumbnails to the finished boards. My favorite lesson was on Camera moves and how that translates to storyboards. Lyndon was a cool guy and easy to follow, possibly my favorite course on this site!

    Just bought it today and I think it is probably one of the best story-boarding classes out there! I am at my second lesson right now and Lyndon already mentioned a lot of mistakes that I make when I am story-boarding. I am very grateful!
    Plus I really glad I get to support real content creators :).
