I think it depends on...
a) how visual a thinker you are to begin with
b) how you use a storyboard in the film
Vin, you're pretty obviously a visual thinker from the start... so you don't need the crutch like I might...
But then, I'm not the type of guy who necessarily sticks to the storyboard once I've made it. Stuff that happens organically can still happen... but personally, it's kinda nice to have that... cushion? safety-net? for when things aren't coming together organically but you still need to get the shots in for the sake of the story.
As I understand it from doing a lot of reading about it, that's sort of how the Coens use storyboards... as a guideline, but not a Bible.
