The text on the Hyperspace page (which requires membership), reads:
"Insider readers who enjoyed J.W. Rinzler's revealing "Pirates of the Boards" article from issue #91 can view the rare storyboard artwork here in an enlarged slideshow format — please see the original article for additional information regarding these rare images.
Be sure to check out Rinzler's continuing series of early storyboard art in the next five issues of Star Wars Insider!"
To my knowledge, the majority of these storyboards were done by Joe Johnston.
PS: I'm attaching a few more proto-storyboards storyboards to this set, as I find them.
Just updated the blog with a translation page, so now you can read me in lots of other different languages (if you can read any). Since the only other languages I speak are computer languages, I wouldn’t mind some feedback in comments as to how accurate the tool is.

Thanks to: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/translate-your-blog-into-different-languages?replies=2 for providing the workaround for wordpress, and http://www.teach42.com/ for their 30 days to a better blog series for suggesting this. I love it!
Have been checking out GoAnimate for the last hour.
I read about this on http://www.teach42.com/ a blog that I’ve just recently discovered, that I’m loving. At the moment, I’m trying out their “30 days to a better blog”…but more about that later.
Since I have a fair amount of knowledge in Flash, I approached GoAnimate quite skeptically. After about 10 minutes fiddling around with their very simple interface, I think that it may be a great animation tool for those that know absolutely nothing (and don’t need to) about the technical skill of animation. I’m definately planning on implementing this into my Year 7 Technology (Mandatory) class, but also see it as a very simple tool for effective implementation of ICT into any curriculum.
I’ve done some claymation in class to teach complex problems, and have found this really easy to do, and very motivating for students. The best tool for this is JPEG Video, which is a free program that takes a sequence of images (for example, from a camera) and automatically pieces them together into an AVI.
Some ways to use this in the classroom involve:
Overall, aside from being a little slow (on my connection), Go animate seems like an excellent tool for students and teachers, as they don’t need to know anything about animation, and is extremely easy to use.
For comments: What experiences have you had with animations in the classroom? Do students find it motivating? Is it a good learning tool?
