Art of Storyboard with Ridley Scott

I am not specialize in storyboard professionally, but Manga and comic book is what jump start my career as a concept artist. I love to learn and still learning from a bunch of tutorial from other professionals. Youtube has always been huge help for me in finding material and inspiration. I stumbled on this video while I was searching for tutorial on how to be good at art of storyboard.
The first guy, as far as I know, who bring storyboard to use as major process in film has to be Alfred Hitchcock. Hitchcock was known for his extensive storyboarding down to the finest detail of production. He was reported to have never even bothered looking through the viewfinder, since he didn’t need to do so. Looking at his storyboards versus the finial film it’s safe to say that is a vast overstatement.
A lot of great directors know how to storyboard really well, especially Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott. Scott is especially known for having one of the best cinematography in film.
