The montage, a standard for movie one sheets, is quite simply the combining two or more elements into one compositional design. The basic Concepts and a clear procedure will have you doing what seemed impossible with a new confidence, free of confusion. This is not a rendering class, though you are free to develop class projects as far as you wish. Choose any genre from ‘Dawn of the Dead’ to ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Camelot’…work from my reference or your own. This is an important class, do not miss it!
