A STORYBOARD

is a "Visual Script" for a production team to follow to create a story. It can read like a "comic book", but with clear descriptions of camera shots, movement and sounds to be created later.

Here's a storyboard

for a simple scene you should be able to animate in Anim8or. Study it and get a clear idea of how the movie should appear
