For this class i had Elliot Bour - animator for Walt Disney and worked on Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan. He also does freelance storyboarding and directed a number of commercials.
For this class we was given a story planning packet which gives you the steps on how to develop your ideas and get them ready for delivery. Yes! you guessed it we have to record our self pitching the ideas to camera while keeping it short and to the point.
Over this class we had to come up with five different ideas, from them five ideas we narrow it down to two. We then pitched the two ideas to camera. And after feedback and possible changes, we then re-pitch one of the two ideas again. From there one idea will and should come out strongest and its that idea which you will then be turn into a 2D animatic and from there start a 3D Layout pass.
