Sketching and Storyboarding
Foundation is the Key
Film making process can be broadly devided into three categories, Preproduction, Production and Post Production. All are equally important but while making a castle if foundation is not properly set sooner or later the whole structure will collapse. Same happens in the case of movie making. While making a film, small or big, we have to understand that Effects are not the hero of the film, it is the story which makes a film a winner or a looser. So it is necessary to understand the process of pre production and story boarding is a part of it.
Pre Production starts with an idea which leads to a great story but that story is in the mind of the writer or the director. So to share the same story with all the crew Storyboarding is done. Storyboarding is nothing but a sequence of sketches which helps all the members of the team to understand the story in visual form.
We at BBDL, understand the fact that Sketching or storyboarding can not be learnt within a few days or a few months. It is a continuous process that imbibes an asthetic sense in the minds of the students and thats why we have made sketching and storyboarding compulsory thoroughout the Effects course.
