Free Procreate storyboard template for 1.85:1 aspect ratio anime films

Story artists, animators, film directors, illustrators, and designers love this free anime storyboard template on DIN A4 vertical (portrait) page, initially designed for print and now available for Procreate. This template has five frames per sheet, 1.85:1 aspect ratio (Widescreen). The beautiful storyboards from Studio Ghibli inspired this layout.

  • The first column indicates cuts. Use it to number your shots—a single shot sometimes need several pictures.
  • The second column is the picture screen. That’s where you draw your storyboard shots.
  • Then there is a space for action, dialogue, and your script notes.
  • The last column, time, is for writing the duration of your shots in seconds.
