Storyboarding (4 weeks)

Our popular evening course is now available to study full-time over the summer. So if you’re looking to boost your skills, want to learn more about conceptual process or discover what it takes to be a storyboard artist - this is the course for you.

Over 4 week, we’ll show you the art and craft of storyboarding, the initial conceptual process required before any feature can be created. It’s relevant for anyone who wants to learn storyboarding, whether for live action, animation, commercials, or your own private projects.

The course has been designed by industry professionals, including the very talented Francesca Adams, Storyboard Artist at Blue Zoo (one of London's leading animation houses). Industry engagement is the heart of all of our courses and students will work on a live industry brief as part of this course.

To provide additional support and practice there will also be an 8 week period of online mentoring, in which students can polish their skills in a virtual classroom and receive ongoing feedback and support.
