166 Students: Storyboarding

The most important ingredient is to have a PLAN. 
Don Bluth used to say, "If you fail to plan - you plan to fail".
In order to PLAN - you have to THINK. Ask yourself these kinds of questions:
  • a. What is the purpose of this scene?
  • b. What is the character doing in this scene?
  • c. How does this scene contribute to the whole piece?
  • d. What is the mood of the scene?
  • e. What are the emotions of the character?
  • f. What came before...what follows?
  • g. Do I have enough images to explain the story? (Show it to another person and ask them if     they under stand what is happening).
Below are sample Story Board Animatics
As you watch all of them, pick one and count the number of changes that happen and count each change as a frame.

For Thursday, please read chapter 1 in the textbook
"Ideas for the animated short" be ready to talk about your projects theme and the story archetypes.
