KNB216 Visual Storytelling: Cinematic Pre-Visualisation

This unit introduces the creative and technical processes involved in design-to-story previsualisation. It expands upon drawing skills learned in KNB136 Visual Storytelling: Production Design and introduces the devices and techniques employed in cinematic narratives through storyboarding and animatics. Along with studying screen conventions, drawing is an important technique employed in the design and sequence previsualisation in visual storytelling regardless of the medium. This unit provides a historic context, and core skills, concepts and processes for the development and production design as a way to previsualise and then articulate the look and feel of a story. You will practise and refine your drawing and storytelling skills while working on script-based sequences that employ screen language techniques in order to create meaning, emotion and deliver an engaging story. The knowledge gained in this practice-based unit is relevant to animation, live action and games.
