Also, when I do draw storyboards, it's because I'm so inspired to make the movie that I want to make it immediately. Storyboards are a way that I can see some instant output of my inspiration, and in the process find cool places to put the camera that I might not have seen on the set.
Anyway that's my amateur two cents

I just did a short which we didn't storyboard and barely shotlisted - simply because of time constraints.
It was a huge mistake, and we missed a lot of stuff.

how else can you remember every single shot that you have to set up when your shooting?
I ask for them for every shoot - often the more detailed or well drawn - inspire my lighting even more...
Directors who dont give me a story board will then have to explain each shot individually before i set it up - this is a complete waste of production time (even if it only takes a few miniutes) - if there is a storyboard, i dont need to waste time trying to find the director / wait for he/she to finish talking on the phone etc etc..... to describe what he / she wants. You can setup two three shots in advance just by refering to the story board.
also for ordering equipment - you need to see how wide, close etc a shot is - one persons definition of 'wide' may be an 18mm while others think 'fish-eye'.
shot lists dont have the same appeal - after a few hours it just becomes a blur of text on the paper
"MC O/shoulder Jim - Mary Bkrd G-Scrn Zoom CU"
"MC O/shoulder Bob - Mary Bkrd G-Scrn Zoom CU"
"CU upside dwn Crane - O/shlder BLah Blha"
It also gives everybody onset an idea of whats intended - again another time-saver.
