View Full Version : Information on Storyboarding Previsualization

10 October 2009, 01:40 PM
Hey everyone,

I am new to the forums here. I am currently a student attending a 3d Animation Production program in Canada.

I have basically decided that I would love to be in story concept or previsualization, however, I am unsure how to gain more knowledge in these areas.

I have been to film school and know a lot about story development, shots, cinematography and so forth, I have some books published and am lucky enough to have a screenplay optioned, but I would really like to take my story's to the next step through previs and storyboarding.

I have only been able to find little information in these areas. Any help would be great.

not sure how much technical information there is about storyboarding i this book but I'll let you know since I have it at home and planned to start reading it tonight

Thanks man. Haven't seen this one yet. Only one I have seen and know is semi useful is this one.

But it is mainly Photoshop style story boarding.

Is this the way the industry is going? Or is it more the choice of the artist rather than the studios/directors?

I heard a lot about previsualization being done in Motion Builder because of the speed at which someone can work.

Anyhow, thanks for the heads up about the book, let me know how it turns out?

I enjoyed Mark Simon's Storyboads: Motion in Art. I don't aspire to be a storyboard artist, by any means, but I still found it to be a valuable book, and an engaging read. It covers practical technique, industry expectations and marketing, among other things; a very well-rounded text.
