IFP Summer Camps 2016: Storyboard Camp (ages 13-17)
Starts July 25
Monday–Friday, July 25–29, 12–4 pm
Great films start with great storyboards. In this camp, we will learn how to design to tell your story in the best way possible. What does it take to make your audience feel how you want them to feel? Learn the tricks that engage your audience by understanding the principles of film storytelling and how to visually develop your story on a storyboard. Students will create a storyboard for a short film then turn that storyboard into an animatic (an animated storyboard). Students should bring a short script (1-3 pages) the first session to develop into a storyboard during the camp. No prior drawing skills required.
