Thanks Jeff. I'll share a little of the process I went through, too, as it might help others getting started. First, I bought a Mac and Keynote and went hog wild with complicated Magic Move tricks. Spent way too much time on that and ended up throwing it all away.

Then I sat down and wrote the story in text form. Then I sketched out a couple pages of storyboard to match the text. Then, finally, I went into Keynote and laid those out.

Basically, this means that it was more effective to match the visuals to the story, then to try to match a story to (slicker) visuals. The end result is less exciting visually than what I was originally playing with... but it works much better.

I recommend that approach.
