Re: Do a lot of movies use this 3 color rule?

Oh okay, it's just that other filmmakers tell me to attract producers and investors, like they did for their scripts. Plus they are interested in helping me out with it they said, but if I don't try to attract more funding, they may loose interest perhaps, but not sure.

Re: Do a lot of movies use this 3 color rule?

You don't need storyboards for getting funders and producers, unless you're going animation. Producers are interested in the script and the story because they know they'll be spending five years of their lives in the project, so they want to be interested the story and feel that they can get investors interested.

Investors want to know if there's a potential market for the film and what are the selling points to that market. The latter is the reason why they want to know which actors are attached.

The writer and the director have to be able to sell both themselves and the story to the above people in the pitch. There won't be time to look at storyboards during a pitching session of a live action project.

Don't confuse line producers and production managers with producers, they're different jobs. Real producers get the money and put together the deals.

So basically the stuff Ryan ignores/would rather not focus on is the stuff that would be needed to get him funding.

Oh okay, I can just draw the storyboards out myself then, if that's best. It's just in my drawings, I suck at getting some details right, but perhaps it's not going to be too bad.

You are treating storyboards as something they don't have to be. A 2019 movie had this one - works perfectly.
