Action Sequence Practice! I applied tips from Steve Ahn's Action Adventure Storyboard Workshop. It is a pricey course but I have benefited greatly from it (: You can check it out at the link below
Mad Libs! Job/Place/Prop = Postman/Mars/Fishing. This was a challenging one no thanks to the suggestions by Shiella, a phenomenal illustration classmate of mine. Do follow her ig at https://www.instagram.com/shiella.w/
The initial design of the postman was heavily inspired by Moebius. This human design was scrapped for a robot because the fisherman was supposed to be a skeleton at first and the whole story was about the vastness and indifference of the universe (a human postman will not deliver mail to a dead man) but then I realized that it did not make sense for someone to die while fishing and so I changed many things.
The initial target of this exercise was 2 beatboards a week. However, after consulting with my classmates, they felt that I have gotten beatboards down and should focus more on creating smoothly flowing storyboards. As such, I am now doing 1 storyboard a week instead.
Thanksgiving break is next week, for now, gotta keep soldiering on with assignments!
It's been 3 months since the last post!
The 11 Shots a Day* exercise was put on hold as I shifted my attention to collaborative projects and heavier classes. Those projects and classes are still going on but I want to resume polishing up my story skills. I will be uploading 2 simple stories every week starting from 7 Nov to improve my variation in shots, camera movements, cuts and story genres.
For now, please enjoy some of the favorite boards I did over the summer (:
* From Mid May to Mid July, I created a simple story everyday using the standard 11 shots in film
