Lynett C. or anyone who is interested, I have worked on quite a few storyboards
 for projects in multimedia, spacifically  animation projects. I can't imagine
creating an animation without one. There are a great number of things that must
 be concidered and a storyboard seems to work the best for everyone who is invo
lved.  The difficulty is trying to understand a moving world by viewing several
 windows expressing what will happen and when it will happen. The clients usual
ly will have an idea in their minds which is better understood when they can re
spond to actual images on a page.  Just like any sketch phase for an illustrati
on, a story board will solve many problems before the hard time consuming work
begins.  As far as them being used in scientific illustration, I'm not sure if
in the traditional media it would be useful. Again the main reason to show a se
ries as in an annimation would be to try and explain what will happen next.  In
 traditional scientific illustration, what happens next is usually just another
 illustration. I hope there is some useful info here, I feel like I've said the
 same thing several times in different ways. I guess I could have just said, Th
ere does'nt seem to be a real need for storyboarding in traditional scientific
illustration unless it is for an annimation or educational video of sorts.
