Short and sweet, I'm looking to create a storyboard for an animation project. Does anyone know what information a storyboard artist would need in order to do their thing? Would they need compete dialog or a brief explanation of the scenes?
Does anyone have examples of what Is ready to go to storyboarding?
Also, since I'm already typing, does anyone know of a common storyboarding program? I can't draw worth a damn but it would be nice to see what variables a storyboarder may need to fill in from information supplied from the writer.

Are you storyboarding for someone else? You might find it difficult if you can't draw, because storyboarding for someone else is all about visual communication. So find what is comfortable to you, and imagine you're seeing it for the first time.
Is the composition striking? i.e. the silhouettes are distinct etc.
Is it relevant to the scene? i.e. camera tilts show who has the power etc.
Does it go from/to the previous/next shot without confusion? i.e. no cuts that move more than 180 degrees is a basic rule, though good directers work around it
A program? Microsoft paint will do you. It's not about the program, it's about the ideas you're having.
