Storyblocks is the tridimensional equivalent of the storyboard: it represents the basic elements of a scene sequence in a film or animation movie through building blocks. After building the scene and materializing its components, the framing and camera movements can be experimented with using still photos or improvised videos. It is a fast low-fidelity technique that supports codesigning audiovisual materials. It enables those who can’t draw to participate in design. In combination with background images displayed on a hidden laptop or tablet, it can also be used to make up quick storyboards.
