How does this relate to the project?
– storyboard – split it up into sections
Storyboard: planning the animation / showing visually what you think / little detailed
Things to think about when storyboarding:
Pan / Tilt / Zoom / Tracking / Movement / Transitions / Pace
Storyboard the following advert:
For this workshop, we had to work through the advert and story board the different frames throughout the video. It’s 60 seconds long and 2 different scenes – one in the school and the other outside. We drew the scene in one colour (a red pen to show the scene in the school and green to show the scene outside), then a grey pen to show the different transitions and the movements of the characters – like the closing of eyes, movement of arms, turning, etc – and then used a blue pen for the animation. We drew exactly what we saw on each frame of the advert, which I understand in storyboarding for our film, is not what you’d do because you don’t know exactly what it will look like. I’d never done a huge amount of storyboarding before so it was definitely helpful in learning how to storyboard – so focusing on where the camera is going to be, page transitions, panning, tracking, etc.
