After a lot discussions with tutors, peers and my inner demons, I’ve finally finished the rough, first version of my storyboard.
Let me tell you this was a very strenuous process. Mostly because I’m terrible at storyboards, but also I felt I was doing too much than I needed to do, and was panicking that my story was going to be longer than I wanted it to be, and so I was constantly going back and altering things so it wouldn’t be as long. But never the less it’s done. and with it I can proceed with the animatic, so I can see if my story is not as long as I fear it to be, as well as to see if it all fits together and reads well, not only to me, but also to the audience.
Also I came across this useful website/blog – Ian Freer, illustrations by Olly Gibbs. 2017. The Camera Angles You Need To Know – Empire . [ONLINE] Available at: https://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/film-studies-101-camera-shots-styles/. [Accessed 22 November 2017]. Which talks and discuss the different types of shots that are used in film and other medias. This was helpful because whilst writing up each shot that I was using, I couldn’t remember which one was which plus also gave me some inspiration for some shots that I may change.
