Get Ready to Tell Your Story

You know that feeling when you’re watching a movie and you just get swept away? Suddenly you aren’t in a theater or in your living room—you’re IN the story. The characters become real, and you’re 100% invested in their wins, their losses, their struggles, their joys.

THAT is great storytelling at work.

As a storyteller of any kind, your goal is to entrance your audience! You want all eyeballs glued to the screen. So how do you create, plan, present, and share your stories?

This workshop will build on the fundamentals of visual storytelling and help you refine and advance your storyboarding abilities to the next level! Through in-class demos and hands-on assignments, the course will help you fine-tune your storyboarding techniques and create a foundation for your own portfolio, while preparing you to generate and present your own stories.

This workshop picks up where Storyboarding Fundamentals left off. You will explore more intermediate-level techniques and workflows to refine your storyboarding skill set, ultimately learning how to create and pitch your own stories to industry standards.
