Hey kids! If you’re a filmmaker, animator, or storyboard artist and you don’t know what screen direction is, you might want to read this.
For the record, there are always exceptions to the rule in filmmaking, which is why I pointed out 3 examples here.
I’ve also found that comic books tend to NOT take screen direction as seriously as film does, but I’m still on the fence if this is wise or not. My favorite comics pay close attention to screen direction so as to not confuse the reader.
WOW GOSH DANG AMAZING ANIMATION

To commemorate Don Lusk’s 100th birthday, here’s the Arabian Dance sequence he animated for Fantasia way back in 1940. Apparently, there were so many drawings of these coquettish fish that there were stacks of ‘em piled up to the ceiling (the scene is animated almost completely on one’s).
Just look at how gorgeous this scene is. And to realize the amount of progress and development that these animators made over such a short time is simply astounding. In barely ten years they progressed from the black-and-white rubber-hose Mickey Mouse cartoons to the complexity and beauty of Snow White and Pinocchio. I’d go as far to say that this sequence (among the many other breathtaking scenes from Fantasia) was the pinnacle of the medium. At this point, there was no limit to what they could do.
