Storyboard artist Siobhan Twomey is back with a sequel to her very popular introductory course! In this course, you learn filmmaking techniques and principles that are essential knowledge for every storyboard artist.
Siobhan is a filmmaker, animator and storyboard artist. When she isn't busy with her professional projects she generously shares her knowledge through her many educational activities. We welcome Siobhan to our family of trainers!
It all starts with a script. That's why this course begins with the all-important script breakdown. Siobhan teaches you how to approach a new script. She walks you through all the different initial stages of planning, sketching and developing story ideas. She shows you how to discover the important story points and develop shot sequences. In the process, you learn about staging & composition and choosing the proper camera angles to reinforce the intention of the script.
Next up is a section on "opening sequences" where you learn about constructing the sequence of different kinds of shots to reinforce a powerful storyline. Siobhan then explores alternative sequences that establish more dramatic effects by using camera techniques like extreme close-ups and wide-shots.
The final sections focus on screen direction and cuts. Here we learn the 180 degree rule and more advanced cutting techniques to enhance action, movement and motivation. The concluding tutorials explain how to transform your board "roughs" into finished, production-ready storyboards.

i liked The Art of Storyboarding 101, but in this 102-course it gets even better! Lots of in depth info on how to choose your shots and sequence. Highly recommended!

I dropped in out of curiosity and felt motivated to start drawing again after decades of neglecting that fun craft. Not sure if I will have the time to indulge and get up to speed to actually do storyboarding in the end, but I will certainly reference this tutorial a few more times for the drawing primers. Loved it!
