9780240803296: The Art of the Storyboard: Storyboarding for Film, TV, and Animation

The Art of the Storyboard shows beginners how to conceptualize and render the drawings that will communicate continuity to the cinematographer, set designer, and special effects supervisor, or to create the skeletal outline around which an animated program is developed.

Using sketches of shots from classic films, from silents to the present, The Art of the Storyboard covers the history and evolution of this craft and discusses the essentials of translating one's vision onto paper, from the rough sketch to the finished storyboard. Over 100 illustrations from the author's and other storyboard artists' work illuminate the text throughout. Exercises at the end of each chapter help students to develop essential drawing and visualizing skills.

The Art of the Storyboard teaches basic drawing techniques and illustrates the use of perspective, light and shade, and depth of field needed in order to render the human figure in motion. In this book students are introduced to essential components of storyboarding, such as framing, placement of figures, and use of camera angles

It is also a critical skill in creating animation sequences, and is important to the multimedia developer in planning the needs of a project.

This book will show beginners how to use storyboards to communicate their vision to the cinematographer, set designer and special effects supervisor, or to create the skeletal outline around which an animated program is developed, or to plan a multimedia project.

It covers the history and evolution of this craft and discusses the essentials of translating one's vision onto paper., from the rough sketch to the finished storyboard. Illustrations from the author's and other storyboard artists' work illuminate the text throughout.
