    Animation Academy - Class One: Storyboarding

    Note - I have to wait till a friend comes home to get his camera so I can upload pictures for examples. This will be a day or two more. I thought I'd at least give you information now.

    Intro - Everything in the world has to go through a refinement proccess. In most things it goes through this one:

    Brainstorming
    Rough Draft
    Editing
    Revising
    Final Version

    We are going to work with the step of brainstorming for animation. Storyboarding. Storyboarding is laying out the story in different pictures. For this lesson we will be doing one detailed storyboard step and 20 small thumbnail storyboards.

    Goal - Get 20 thumbnail storyboards that follow a story and one of those storyboards turned into a more detailed storyboard.

    Challenge - Make a set of 40 thumbnail storyboards for one story and turn 10 of them into detailed storyboards.

    Example (Thanks gunz) :
    Let me know if you have questions.

    From my animation experience. Storyboarding is the fun, easy part....and then comes actually animating haha.
    Awesome thing you got going on here Jai. I'd also recommend you throw in some professional examples or something just for expert testimony.
    Goodluck allz.

    Storyboarding is the only easy part, but I still like actually animating it as well. It's just not the easy part. :/

    So basically, we're trying to shoot for 20 frame-by-frame panels of the animation? Just want to make sure. C:

    1: What Rio said.
    2: Can We post examples in this lesson and future lessons to be "graded" or something?

    Rio: Yes.

    Rabbid: That is what I would love for you to do!

    Slurpee: Most likely.
