Project 16: Script breakdown into a thumbnail storyboard. Line only.
Thumbnails for a Paola Marino film created by VInce Mancuso. When you do a first pass you should do it quick. It is a gesture. The focus should be on the broad strokes or the large shapes.

Storyboarding is all about clear communication of your vision. Storyboards can help you construct your film, plan your shots and your edit, and visually communicate what you want to the rest of your team.

Storyboarding For People Who Can't Draw, is worth a look, because it focuses on the importance of communicating your story, rather than how well it is drawn. Remember it is not about pretty pictures it is about telling the story.

Behind the scenes on two major sci-fi projects by Ridley Scott made in the past couple years; Hennessy 'Seven Worlds' campaign and 'Raised By Wolves' for HBO Max. The clips focus on his storyboards known as 'Ridleygrams'

Animator Webb Smith created the idea of drawing scenes on separate sheets of paper and pinning them up on a bulletin board to tell a story in sequence. The first complete storyboards were created for the 1933 Disney short Three Little Pigs

Project 16 is about transforming the writing script into a drawn storyboard. It must have a title. Because it illustrates an event that happens in real time, the frames must be numbered and organized in an order. Each frame must have a description, that describes camera movements, Camera position, camera angle. The descriptions also provides the place and environment, example interior, verses exterior. Audio is described in words as well. Anything to advance the story. The Text and drawing work together to provide the production everything they need to know about the scene. A thumbnail board is small, example 1.75x3 inches ( hd format ). Your board must fit in a 14x17 page.
