Storyboarding : Introduction

Two Day Course


Storyboards are the essential starting point for many commercials, dramas, animations, games and film projects. A well designed storyboard will dramatically improve the chances of your project getting off the ground and help prevent time-consuming and expensive mistakes when the production process begins.

This course will teach you the techniques required to produce professional-looking stills storyboards and video storyboards (animatics). This course runs as a private course so feel free to adapt the course content to your exact requirements if you wish. This course assumes no knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator. If you an existing user of these applications, you should take a one day version of this course.
