Storyboarding (8 weeks)
Every good artist tells a story... learn about the initial conceptual process required to create a feature.
This course provides an introduction to 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 is designed and delivered by industry professionals, including the very talented Francesca Adams. Francesca is a storyboard artist at Blue Zoo, one of London's leading animation houses. There will also be a live industry brief to give our students experience of what an industry storyboard test is actually like.
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.
