Storyboarding For Film Video And Animation Short Course

Details

Topics covered

Using short exercises, the course initially concentrates on the basic process of telling stories using sequential images. Participants - as a group - will informally analyse and discuss each other's storyboards and learn the fundamentals together.

Subsequent exercises and presentations will introduce important technical information (the fundamentals of film grammar and cinematic storytelling, narrative pacing, scene-setting, depicting camera moves, lighting set-ups, lenses, etc.) equipping participants with the skills to work with a section of a provided film script to produce a finished sequence.

The final exercise will be shaped by the participants themselves and is an opportunity for them to concentrate on the elements of storyboarding that are personally most relevant to their needs.

By the end of the course participants should have gained invaluable knowledge of script visualisation and the processes involved in completing a professional storyboard.

Materials

Please bring with you to the first session:

  • 2B pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Eraser
  • Ruler
  • A4 or A3 sketchbook
  • Any other drawing materials you wish to use.
