you can export from most video packages as a jpeg or gif sequence which will give you sequentially numbered image files.
If you wanted them to be printed out like panels behind Walter Murch then you'd have to artwork those yourself probably and insert the images.
Photoshop > Import > Video Frames To Layers > Scripts > Export Layers to Files
I wanted to avoid a 2 step process, but it looks like that's the only possible way nowadays.
((read about the filmstrip .flm format, but doesn't seem to be available no more))
I'm pretty sure you can do this with Quicktime 7. I've kept my old copy around for all kinds of simple stuff like this. There is an Export option that allows you to choose Movie to Image Sequence and the options allow you to choose file format, compression, etc.
You can download QT 7 from Apple:
yes, there was a way to export it ready on a grid, but its been discontinued.
best option is to export a sequence o images and then use another software to put it on a grid, like indesign, or bridge I think does a pdf in grid if you want, instead of 1 image per page.
I'm sure if you're doing this, you are only rendering very key frames of the scenes right? instead of all frames.
if you want a quick way to render only the frames you want, you can time remap your movie/comp, then make a keyframe on every scene you want, then turn these keyframes into "Toggle Hold Keyframe", then just put them in sequence and render a image sequence
export a image sequence, jpg or psd
then build a massive contact sheet in photoshop with the automate feature
