ABOUT THE MEDIUM: Original Production Beat Boards are one-of-a-kind pieces of art that were used in the creation of an animated film or television show. A story beat is an element, like a character’s action, event, and so on, that moves a story forward or is a noteworthy turning point. They are visual/aural sentences. Beat boards are the bare bones and basic structure of the story. It is a visual outline. They help to keep the theme of the piece in sight and in focus.
