What you'll learn
Visually presenting a story can be a creative, collaborative, and fun experience. We'll begin by discussing the usefulness of creating a storyboard and some elements to aim for when crafting one. From there, we'll start the process of fleshing out the shots of our own story by visually nailing down the world in which its events take place, starting with the establishing shot. As we progress forward, we'll learn about how we want to visually present the main character, build anticipation for the story's conflict, show our character's motivation and the obstacles they'll face, and, finally, how to arrive at a resolution. Along the way, we'll also learn about maintaining good compositions to lead the viewer's eye through each shot, in addition to making editorial changes to the arrangement of our shots to improve the progression and flow of our story. After watching this tutorial you'll be able to construct your own story boards with more creative confidence while having a lot of fun. Software required: Photoshop CC 14.0.
