Storyboard artist in Cape Town, South Africa

I am a highly skilled, efficient, and experienced storyboard artist in Cape Town, South Africa.One of the talents I bring to table is that I recognise that women are the focus of most advertising, but storyboard artists tend to be men, and it shows. They don't know us like we know ourselves.

As a storyboard artist in Cape Town, I am surrounded by beautiful women every day. Cape Town has an awe-inspiring natural collision of mountains and sea, and I see women every day, swimming, riding, climbing, surfing, running, relaxing, sipping drinks and eating out, in all their natural beauty, effortless glamour, and instinctive poise.

“Lizza is the best. She understands cameras like nobody else. She gets what you’re talking about straight away, visualises it accurately, and gets the mood, the little facial expressions, the interactions.. and she sketches them right there while you are talking so you can see she’s understood you perfectly.

She’s the best to work with too. You can rely on her completely.. she never misses a deadline. She comes and sits right down and does the job straight away, and she is really fast. Done. She’s the best. There’s really nobody else.”

– Keith Rose, Cannes Gold Winner, Clios TV Hall of Fame, Cannes Silver Lion 08 and Loeries Grand Prix 08 for Allan Gray ‘Beautiful’.

Keith Rose has been directing commercials for about 25 years and has won a dizzying array of prizes, of which the above are merely a sample.

More about Lizza

I am a fast and accurate shooting-board illustrator with over 20 years storyboarding experience and three university degrees: architecture, art and literature.

I am great at capturing facial expressions and have unusually high three-dimensional perception which means that I can imagine very accurately what the camera is going to see.

My grasp of what you need combined with the speed with which I can render it means that I am able to meet high-tension deadlines and solve the problems which arise around them. My skills and experience make me exactly what film-makers are looking for.

What is a storyboard?

July 8, 2023

Origins of storyboards in classical painting Classical artists like Rembrandt drew mockups, called “cartoons” of their paintings before launching into the final work.

My lovely friend Kathy need a backdrop for an event at South African Breweries. I drew them by hand, and they were then processed into a final composite ready-for-print vector illustration file that could be printed on a 25 meter wide beer tent. The separate illustrations were hand-drawn, much like a very huge storyboard. Then…

I’ve saved film shoots and changed lives as a storyboard designer

February 8, 2021

A storyboard designer can draw accurately enough to stand in for a camera before the film is actually made. This happens not once, but twice, during the making of a film commercial. When a client approaches an advertising agency, or a funder approaches a film-maker, they are commissioning a story which will eventually be told…
