Preparing to Storyboard: Breaking Down the Story BEFORE You Begin to Draw
"Breaking down the story BEFORE you begin to draw" will be about the process of preparing to begin your storyboard by studying your script, identifying story problems, creating master set-ups, and developing a "bird's-eye-view' of your scene so you can come up with a game plan before you begin to draw. The universal storyboard artists' problem of wanting to jump in and start your board before you are ready because of the ticking clock of production makes this webinar one of the most crucial in the series. Preparation actually saves time when done properly, but learning how to prepare is one of the most difficult, yet important concepts to grasp.
Basic Cinematics: Understanding Traditional Film Language
This webinar will cover the basic building blocks of staging a visual story in a way that the audience is conditioned to view it. We will touch upon revolutionary examples from television and film that set up the rules for clean staging, allowing the viewer to take in the story without feeling bogged down by it's logic. Robb also has prepared some fantastic handouts to help illustrate webinar.
Drawing and Composition for Storyboarding: How Drawings Are Used To Tell Story
In this June webinar, "Drawing and Composition for Storyboarding", we'll discuss how drawings are used to tell a story, and how simple perspective tricks can help you communicate your camera angles with believability. We'll also go over the terminology of camera angles and moves, and shed light on how each composition can be used to most effectively tell your story.
Story Flow: Making Shots Work Seamlessly Together. I'll discuss how to build rhythm in your story telling by having your shots build into each other and work off of each other like a great musical score. I'll also go over fundamental cutting - how motivated cuts and camera moves make for good story flow.
