STORYBOARD/CONCEPT ART for “The Magic Wand”
DATELINE: September 26th
Here is a nice Storyboard TEMPLATE for those who wish to use one.
[u]Why we need help?[/u]
[b][/b]We will be doing some storyboards for the next fxwars challenge.
Becuase of the extreme complexity of the challenge I wan to provide some pre-production boards
to all participants to help them & inspire them.
WHAT IS THE FXWARS?
FXWARS is our ongoing visual effect challenges of the CGTALK forum. The idea is to PUSH what can be done in terms of visuals.

We have done 21 challenges so far.
Ok what is the challenge about?
Well the participants will be able to do a fx sequence based on the idea of Magic Wand
(Keep in mind that this is a fofum for all the family)
The FX sequence requires that the “hero” character be a live action character.
(Please remmeber this when storyboarding. We will be recoding two actors in one room)
The type of entry will be either
[li]SINGLE SHOT[/li][li]FULL SEQUENCE[/li][/ul]All the work will be based on the following topics:
[li]Misc…[/li][li]Duel (Warlock fight)[/li][li]Magic gags (Imagine a shot of a guy using his magic) This type of entry is perfect for Single shots[/li][/ul]Some ground rules:
[li]NO COSTUMES (Good God no), we dont need another Star Wars kid >>LINK<<[/li][li]No established characters.[/li][/ul]
[li]The sequences would be made with live action with visual effects.[/li][li]if you are doing a storyboard, keep in mind that people might use your boards for filming.[/li][/ul]Ok what can I do now?
Well we are giving a LOT of leeway for artists & concepts artists to post concept art/ storyboards based on the aftermentioned rules .
If you have an idea for a sequence or some concept art post it on this thread. I will later post some possible scenarios…
My advice, KEEP IT SIMPLE
