Description

Throughout these lessons, we'll learn how to set up a Photoshop document for a set of sequential images before creating thumbnails of our screenplay for director approval. We'll learn some of the technical jargon used in the film industry related to different types of camera shots and how to set up our perspective for each of those angles. We'll cover basic poses used most frequently in storyboarding: walking, standing, and sitting as well as some action poses. We'll take a storyboard frame through to it's conclusion, finessing the drawing and adding some shading for mood and suggested lighting. By the end of the tutorial, you should have a clear understanding of how storyboards are created. Software required: Photoshop CS5.
