This summer I chose to take a Storyboarding class to replace the required Illustration 3 (digital illustration). The first day of class, I left with a sinking feeling. It seemed as though I was the only one in the class who wasn't a die hard science fiction addict. (To prove my point, our first assignment was to storyboard either a car chase, a zombie attack or an argument...more points were rewarded if you were able to incorporate all three into one storyboard.)
Don't get me wrong, I love a good Star Wars movie every now and then, but that is about as deep as it goes. As luck would have it, my professor loves when students break out of the box and make assignments work for them.
This particular class is completely focused around the final project due at the end of the summer. I have chosen to storyboard a poem, and instead of using drawing or digital illustration to create my boards, I have decided to do mixed media collage.
This board is a section of the first stanza of the poem and only half of a sentence. Unfortunately, this board makes it glaringly obvious that I am hopelessly addicted to wood texture at the moment. Not to worry though, because each board features a different background.
Stay posted for more throughout the summer...
