Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with Storyboards.
- For this course I've pulled together a collection of real-world assets. These come from some projects that we've worked on for clients through the years. Now, these end products are copyright of the individual clients, so please don't post these online or add them to your demo reel. I've gotten permission so that you can get hands-on with this material, and experience what a realistic storyboard looks like, as well as put together an actual animatic that was used in the production of a nationally televised public service announcement. Hopefully you find this real-world experience helpful because it lets you get hands-on and see some of the challenges that you'll face.
Now if your lynda.com membership includes it, you'll be able to download these files and use these throughout the learning. If not, just follow along, or grab some of your own files. You'll also notice I've added two pieces of hardware today. I'm gonna be using a scanner to load in a raw storyboard sketch. Don't worry, I'll give you the scan as well so you can use it and continue to enhance. But, if you've got your own scanner, this might be a good time to either connect it to your computer, or find a chance to use it in your office later.
And the tablet is useful but not essential. I'll share some strategies with you when it comes to adding lines or enhancing a storyboard further. So, whether you've got access to the files or not, lets jump in.
- Creating storyboards
- Scanning sketches
- Drawing with tablets
- Coloring and cleaning up storyboards
- Creating animatic shots in After Effects
- Using 3D cameras with storyboards
- Editing an animatic assembly
- Exporting an animatic for client review
