2 four hour classes
*Go to the CALENDAR for class dates and times.
Expand upon concept design principles used in the film, games and publishing
industries and begin to build the visual intelligence of your worlds. The focus of these classes will be to understand story structure and its relationship to world building. You write a simple story or use an existing one, then create the elements (environments, characters, props) and bring it to life. Students must have some proficiency in drawing materials, and proficiency in Photoshop.
We will work mainly in graphite and computer. If you have a digital tablet bring it.
DAY ONE- Lecture on the Art of Story. We will review how story principles affect
the entire design of a project. After a story is broken down into scenes, we create a Style Board for the foundation of the environments, and then begin to storyboard it. Students will choose one genre, ie: Western, Adventure, Romance, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, etc. and will explore it in depth.
- We focus on flat, middle and deep space. Camera angles, editing techniques are all sketched out.
DAY TWO- Your Storyboarding style. Material techniques that define your methodology. We refine a few of your strongest storyboard panels to create a finished look to the art.
