Overall Satisfaction with Storyboard That

I used Storyboard That for creating storyboards as cinematographer on several personal film products. Storyboard That allowed me to quickly create visual mockups of scenes in order to communicate the shot composition and actions between other collaborators on the project. These projects tend to be small in the scope of other team members on the project, but high volume in the number of boards I might need to create.
  • Drag & drop interface is quick to learn and simple to use.
  • A wide range of prefabricated elements such as scenes, characters, shapes, etc.
  • The pricing plans are straightforward for different user segments.
  • Some of the items have built-in editing capabilities (i.e., changing the sky color in a background), but others can barely be edited, and the distinction isn't apparent.
  • The visual style of the site seems dated and "clunky".
  • Doesn't integrate with any other programs.
  • Poorly optimized for mobile: the options are hard to access, button sizes are inconsistent, etc.
  • Some aspects of the site navigation aren't intuitive, like how to exit out of search results.
  • No ability to change angles or perspective; everything is completely flat.
  • Drag & drop interface allows for high volume.
  • Adjustable layouts and (some) editing capabilities.
  • Large library of stock assets.
  • Quick visual communication tool saves time on cross-team planning.

If you're trying to quickly create a high volume of simple scenes to communicate an action or scenario, Storyboard That will meet the basic need without requiring a lot of learning time. This software would also likely be a simple solution for anyone who needs scene templates, icons, or other elements. Though I've primarily used Storyboard That for personal use in film projects, I could also see how the stock images might be helpful in my professional role as a Product Manager for creating visuals to illustrate user personas and user stories.
