Sunday 11th June
9am – 6pm
Bring to mind your very favorite movie. There’s an extremely good chance that the movie you love most was made using Story Art. In its earliest days, when your favorite movie was just a dream in the mind of its first creator, that dream took form in a series of pictures that made it possible to share the story with others. These pictures then became a visual plan that sold the dream to those who could make the project a reality.
This visual planning is known as Story Art.
You’ve probably heard of ‘storyboards’ but did you know the biggest movies in the world spend millions of dollars making them? If You can tell a story in a series of pictures, you have a major advantage in today’s entertainment industry.
Christian Gosett happily returns to Industry of Imagination to teach You the fundamentals on how to begin, and set you on your way to being able to tell any story you like, by boiling it down to a series of simple pictures.
After this workshop, you will have taken your first steps toward what is arguably the most sought after skill in modern entertainment.
