Justin, is your storyboard live on the site? I'd love to check it out.

Gary,

No, the way it works is you tell it to generate the storyboard, then go through it line by line clicking on your narrative and then watching it generate pictures. If there is a house mentioned, it comes up with a generic house, and then you can click 'change background' and see several other options. It puts people in there, but they are generic and look at you, and then you can change emotions and directions they face, etc. Which is why I say it is very similar to Frame Forge and other tools like this.

- Imagine you drew your characters, then just drew some different angles and emotions, then copied and pasted them all over with your scenes you drew. That is what this is, just with someone else having drawn these for you already, and of course they look nothing like your characters.

So, after fifteen minutes of playing with it I realized it would never be useful to me and moved on. It also took too long to load/ sometimes didn't load, so when I would try to tell the character to change position or smile, it took forever.

Scorsese drew stick figures on napkins for the "do I look like a clown" dinner scene in Goodfellas and that scene came out just fine.

Yep. And he storyboarded the climactic scene in TAXI DRIVER using his half-assed stick figures.

I'm gonna hold out til Amazon gives us a musical score for our screenplays. Only then will my screenplay be complete.

Used the tool, it's as laughable as one would expect it to be. Needs re-hauling if not scrapping.
