Regardless of whether you’re making a short promo video or a feature-length film, the storyboard is an intrinsic first step in the pre-production of your content. When you start your planning, you need to think of your storyboard as a blueprint - a visual representation, using drawings and illustrations to map out the flow of your content. It is in this early stage that you can create an effective skeleton and solid plan that you and your team agree on. You can hash out details on specific shots, transitions and suggest ideas that will work on film. Coming back to your storyboard will also help with editing and any issues that may arise later in production.
Avengers: Endgame is the emotional culmination of twenty-two films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We all want to work on films and commercial productions where we have the budget and the creative that allows for casting calls, talent agents and professional actors to deliver inspired performances. But in reality many creative concepts these days call for "real talent," another way of saying using real people vs. professional actors.
