Advanced Visual Storytelling will simulate life as a professional story artist. We will expand upon the lessons learned in Visual Storytelling 1 to craft more nuanced scenes with layers of visual storytelling. We will also discuss world-building and artistic style and how to best bring your voice into the larger film-making industry.
Assignments will include: storyboarding from script pages, storyboarding from experience, explorational story development sketches, and pitching to the class.
- Storyboarding from a script: ex Action Sequence (20-30 boards, two week assignment)
- dialogue/ acting sequence (20-30 boards, two week assignment)
- Creating characters.
- Personal Story (20-30 boards, two week assignment)
