Animatics - simple animations which communicate the gist of a story - are a natural extension of the storyboarding process. We've experienced first hand how crucial they are to creating a great final product. We wanted a way to create, share and export animatics as simply as possible. That's why we made the Boords Animatic Tool.
Adding support for collaborative storyboarding was the biggest functional challenge we'd faced, but also proved the most pivotal in terms of revenue. I only wish we'd done it sooner.
We started as a classic 'scratch your own itch' product, and launched our MVP with 2,000 early-adopters on the waiting list.
Boords exists to make the pre-production process simpler.
