Who Should Attend:
This Continuing Education Workshop is exclusively for Cinematographers, Directors, and Producers. "A must-have skill for every director." Filmmakers, videographers, and digital storytellers are encouraged to attend.
The importance of pre-vis with storyboards before the first shot is taken. Storyboarding chrystalizes the continuity of the plot line and, convinces the tech crew and the actors that the director is thoroughly prepared having, 'a la Hitchcock', visualized the script beforehand.
Large blank storyboard forms will be handed out to participants.
Even before directors makes their storyboard sketches – which can be very simply drawn – they must be aware of professional design/compositional factors that make up the images chosen for script continuity. These images to be captured on film, within each framed shot should contain the following design elements listed below.
Design Elements to Look for Within the Storyboard Film Frame:
Keeping the composition or design elements/images drawn within the storyboard
frames simple yet graphically dynamic.
(1.) Separating the image/storyboard frame, into FGD, MDG, and BKD space, using to advantage one-point perspective and its vanishing point. These points will be illustrated on blackboard.
(2.) Receding planes / depth of field.
(3.) Lighting sources that give dimension to shaded figures.
(4.) The Golden Proportion knowledge of the principle of thirds/golden, i.e. dividing the film frame into 2/3, 1/3 proportions, vertically and horizontally.
(5.) Being aware of the Center of Interest in your film frame. (What area do you want the viewer to concentrate on?)
Use of strong compositional devices such as the Pyramid, the
Cone, the use of Curvilinear Lines to frame Center of Interest.
