Basics of Storyboarding: Telling Your Story In A Visual Way
In this class, you'll learn how to make a visual representation of your script (or screenplay). This is called a storyboard.
Storyboarding is useful when you have the script of your film finished, and want to move on to actually creating your film, be it live-action or animated. It helps you decide if your story is understandable, and it helps your team know what you want to accomplish.
I'll show you the basics of storyboarding, such as:
Easy ways to make sure your idea is understood
Tips for framing and staging of your characters
Correct pacing and timing of actions
The differences between a storyboard for live-action and animation
For the class project, you'll make your own storyboard of a short scene. I've provided a script as an example. You can use my script, or create your own.
Remember, you can do your storyboard digitally, or traditionally. Use the option that you feel most comfortable with.
