Free Anime Storyboard Template for 1.77:1 aspect ratio

This is a free anime storyboard template in PDF format on DIN A4 vertical (portrait) page, designed for print. This template comes in two PDF with 5 frames per sheet each in 16:9 (1:77:1) aspect ratio. One has a custom storyboard logo, the other lets you write your production details. The layout is inspired by the beautiful storyboards from Studio Ghibli.


The first column indicates cuts. Use it to number your shots—you can have several pictures for the same shot. The second and main column stands for the picture screen. That’s where you draw or place your pictures. Then there is a space for your script notes for action, dialogue, etc. The last column, time, is for annotating the duration of your shots in seconds.

Print it out and start drawing on paper, that’s the way to do it!
