Directing the Story- Dumb Love Storyboards

When I wrote Directing the Story: Professional Storytelling Techniques for Live Action and Animation,  I had a problem. I had all of these storytelling ideas that I wanted to demonstrate but each time I was coming up with generic examples because there was no context for the ideas. Then I thought, WHAT IF I created a storyboard for the book? That way I could demonstrate the concepts in the context of a real story so you could see how they worked. 
Luckily, I had already created some stories and I chose a story called Dumb Love which was kind of like Romeo and Juliet meets Hatfield's and McCoy's but with monsters. Having a real story made it really easy to come up with demonstration lessons and I think a more valuable learning experience.

Here's some of the storyboards from Dumb Love. (CLICK TO ENLARGE)
