After 3 years of work we are very sad to announce that Shotbox will cease to exist by the end of the month as we don't have enough time to take care of the product or cover the costs to maintain it anymore.
After years of searching but not finding any good online tools for story development and pre-production we sat down and decided to make our own. Shotbox is designed by creatives for creatives to develop storyboards, pitches, styleframes, animatics and much more - quickly and hassle free.
Develop your concept by uploading and organizing your artwork and sound on a timeline and previewing it live.
Simplify your pre-production process by inviting other people to collaborate and give feedback on the project.
Export your work as a movie or as multiple print formats to get feedback and approval from your client.
About the product
We have focused on the core workflow features to get you through pre-production without skipping steps due to boredom and procrastination. We really hope you find them as useful as we do and that you'll find your own ways of using them in your work.
Keep your material in one place, easily accessible and quick to review.
Time your shots
Use the timeline to set the duration and tempo for your story to its contents.
Save all versions
Keep all previous versions of your uploaded media for reference and comparison.
Create labelled sections for technical notes or reminders for your material.
Discuss your work with collaborators and keep everyone up to date.
Share your story as a movie or choose from a set of pretty awesome PDF layouts.
Shotbox is a Stockholm based company that was founded by Thomas, Magnus and Viktor in 2011. Although all three of us live and work in Sweden, we frequently travel the globe as narrative design is a global industry and we love meeting new people. So if you happen to be near Kungsgatan 33 in Stockholm, don't hesitate to come up and talk to our office dog Van Helsing.
Creative director and originator of Shotbox with 20 years of experience in the film and animation business. Owner of visual studio Potemkin.

This right here is not at all a section where we list a bunch of words to attract the attention of internet indexing services. If that was the case (which it, of course, is not) we would have added buzzwords like design, sketch, boardmatic, animatic, storyboard, animation, boardomatic, pre-production, editing, moodboard, feedback, pitch, showcase, board-o-matic, interactive, free, and creative. But as we've stated earlier in this text, that would never happen. Thank you.
