SCENE BREAK DOWNS
Eric R. Watson
Some Very Important Notes To Keep In Mind Before Storyboarding.
- · Go through the script. See what the story is about.
- · What’s the journey the character goes through? And, how can I put that on screen?
- · How can I bring out the inner qualities of a character?
- · How can I bring out what this person is feeling?
- · How can I interpret those things into playable actions?
- · How can I turn a vague script into something playable on screen?
- · Breakdown a script, determine what it’s really about and move toward that thing.
- · Create a Visual Expressions Narrative for each character. (Refer the script.)
- · How do I take a character through an emotional journey?
- · What is their psychological make-up into playable actions?
- · Design where things are located in each scene and how the lighting is set up.
- · What is the choreography for every character for each scene?
- · How do I design each shot to heighten the emotional effect of each scene?
