A color script is essentially a storyboard with color. I'm working on the color script for Buckwheat and through this process I've discovered a lot about the mechanics of my story. Some things that work on paper, don't translate as well into picture. It's proved helpful in strengthening the narrative and tightening things. As I progress through the script it's my intention that every panel of the color script should "read" so that the viewer understands what is happening without any dialogue, which is very hard to do. Below is the color script for the opening scene. The panels read left to right, just like a book (or screenplay).
