Storyboarding will be a sketch development program that will emphasize film shot types, lighting, shot sequence rules, identifying ‘Beat’ points from the story line, along with actual still frame sequences from films to illustrate why these are ‘beat’ points. This is not a graphic novel class with highly inked frames, but the various things we will be learning will certainly be directly useful for these. A clean but modest sketch style using tracing paper, very soft pencils and prismacolor True Blue for value fill.
