In this class, we will explore using pictures to tell stories. With an emphasis on the flow of story arc over time, we will examine existing texts with episodic and sequential structures (such as picture books, comics, albums, film, theater, and opera) and interpret them into storyboards of various 2D and/or 3D visual media. The focus here is on developing and communicating complete dramaturgically-based visual ideas with an eye towards big-picture concepts. This class is geared towards all students interested in time-based visual narratives such as directing/designing/creating/writing for film and theater. No previous artistic expertise is required, but know that the bulk of the work here will be hands-on art projects, presentations, and group critique and discussion in a studio art class format.
We will discuss the particulars of the hybrid format as a class this fall, to make sure everyone is comfortable and responsive to CDC requirements.
