Working in pairs, you will create a storyboard within 30-35 frames/panels, capturing the dramatic interaction of two characters based on observational drawings. Once the storyboard has been completed you will capture the storyboard digitally and create an animatic.
Pairs will begin by exploring character interaction through observational drawings and research.
During this time you should consider important movements and the way in which people interact and use body language to show varying emotions and actions as well as their facial features.
With the aid of sketchbook work and research you will create an idea for a storyboard 30-35 panels in length exploring the dramatic interaction between two characters. When creating the storyboard you should make thumbnail drawings in your sketchbook or use post-it notes to consider which options will give the most interesting and dynamic camera angles and important movements. Once you have created the final draft you will capture the storyboard digitally and use your preferred software to edit the timing to create an animatic or moving storyboard.
• Final storyboard and a work in progress animatic to be presented at a group crit on Tuesday 6th of February.
• Life Drawing examples.
• Development work in sketchbooks highlighting the process and observations.
