Hi Manisha:Definitive influence map = one that embodies style of whole story universe.No - for OGR storyboard doesn't have to be in colour, but final storyboard for hand-in (and from which you'll derive some/all of your animatic) should be at 'presentation quality' - i.e. coloured, expressive, communicative and professional!Love your thumbnail storyboard - script reads engagingly. The only thing I'd note is that your establishing shot of the parlour and the tree - I think you just need to give a bit more thought to where all of this is - so is the parlour and tree situated as part of a pedestrianised highstreet, for example? In terms of the credibility, you just need to give us a bit more visual info as to where the action is taking place. Onwards!
