You can review comic artist Wally Wood’s “22 Panels that Always Work” at:

Typically a storyboard is a single 8.5 X 11 page, with approx. six panels that describe the major action (keyframes), and can include captions or dialogs for narration, and may even call out sound effects or other aspects of the audio track. Strive for a consistent look and feel (eg. don’t mix photographs with clip art). Think about the story arc – beginning, middle, and end. Here’s a link to Freytag’s pyramid:
