FAO CAA Year 1: Unit Story & Commission / Project: From Script To Screen / Online Greenlight Review / Wednesday 20th January

Wednesday, 20th January is your 'From Script To Screen' Online Greenlight Review #1

Your OGR is to be presented as a single Scribd presentation on your blog, beginning with your name, date, and project title. Save your documents as PDFs before uploading to Scribd, as this should mitigate against formating glitches. Written feedback will follow as a 'comment' on your OGR post and will take between 2 - 3 days.

From Script To Screen OGR #1: What do you need to present?

  • The premise of your story 
  • The logline of your story 
  • The step outline of your story 
  • Your 'like-for-like' storyboard segment - completed!

In addition, your OGR should evidence that you are up-to-date with your film reviews and ongoing CG Artist's Toolkit project work (life-drawing/Maya tutorials/Meg's animation exercises/Justin's character exercises etc). Students who use their OGR to manage their weekly tasks in this way manage their workloads more successfully.

Remember, you're gunning for a 'green light' - you want to take your script idea into the pre-production stage as soon as possible, so ensure your story idea is developed sufficiently and communicates effectively. Please note: your OGR should be a professionally presented, spell-checked, with an emphasis on design, layout and project branding. 

I want to see you working together proactively - and standing up to each other too; if you think your classmate's story idea isn't working, you should say so - constructively. Find dynamic and visual ways of archiving your discussions - video diaries, anyone? Audio recordings of brainstorming sessions? Surprise me. You're learning how to collaborate and build professional working relationships -  and no radio silence please; if you don't interact with others positively you're being unsupportive and unprofessional - simple as.  Get involved.  Be useful. Be honest.  Come up with solutions.

Please use your social networks to ensure everyone has seen this message.  Many thanks!
