Friday, 8th February is your From Script To Screen Online Greenlight Review Part 2
Your OGR Part 2 is to be presented as a single Scribd presentation on your blog, beginning with your name, date, and project title. Your OGR presentations should be uploaded to your blogs by 9 pm on Friday 8th February Written feedback will follow as a 'comment' on your OGR post and will take between 1 - 3 days.
From Script To Screen OGR Part 2: What do you need to present?
- Your final script (presented in accordance with screenplay conventions).
- Your completed storyboards* (not 'presentation' quality at this stage).
- Production drawings/concept art (environments/props).
- Production drawings/concept art (character)**.
- Your definitive influence map (overall production design/visual concept for animated short).
- Your definitive influence map(s) for character.
- All film reviews so far (La Jetee, Rope, Psycho, The Birds, Jaws)
- Your creative partnership archive so far (Please note: if you're not engaging in a creative partnership as requested formally by your brief then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to explain any issues preventing you from doing so).
- In addition, your OGR should evidence that you are up-to-date with your ongoing CG Artist's Toolkit project work (life-drawing/Maya tutorials/Meg's animation exercises etc). Your OGR might include links to the corresponding posts and/or images. Historically, students who use their OGR to manage their weekly tasks in this way manage their workloads more successfully.
I look forward to seeing some entertaining, image-rich and exciting OGRs on Friday 8th February. Do not disappoint. It's time you got busy, ladies and gents... Much busier.
* Remember, I will be looking for clear evidence that you're using and applying the conventions of storyboarding (illustrated camera moves, named shots, 'breaking the frame' etc.). I want evidence too that you're using your life-drawing expertise, growing knowledge of the principles of animation, and experience of pre-viz camera techniques in the composition and communication of your story. I want to see storyboard panels distinguished by expressive drawing, dynamic poses and clearly choreographed camera. I want to see you 'directing with a pencil' and doing so with panache, imagination and style! No generic, unmotivated set-ups please - make every shot contribute to the telling of your story.
** Designing a character isn't the same as just drawing one. Please refer to all the resources available to you on myUCA and in the library. I want to see characters for animation - not just drawings of generic people wearing different hats and costumes!
