Free anime storyboard template (Univisum)

Free PDF storyboard template for 2.00:1 aspect ratio anime films

This is a free storyboard template in PDF format on DIN A4 vertical (portrait) page, designed for print. This template has 5 frames per sheet each in 2:1 aspect ratio (Widescreen). 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 is the picture screen. That’s where you draw your storyboard shots.
  • Then there is a space for your script notes: action, dialogue, etc.
  • The last column, time, is for writing the duration of your shots in seconds.

Print it out and start drawing on paper, old school, that’s the real deal.

Here is another way you can use this template: open it in Photoshop, choose crop to Art Box or Crop Box in Import PDF Page options and draw your board on a new blank layer.
