Storyboarding Taster Day Sat 11th May

Iliana Franklin - Storyboarding at Escape Studios
We're running a taster day in storyboarding and previsualisation on Saturday 11th May, so that prospective students can get a feel for the content of our new MA in Storyboarding & Previsualisation, which launches this Autumn.

Story board artist Iliana Franklin, whose production credits include The Tale of Despereaux, will teach the class; and the full day of tuition costs just £25.

Iliana Franklin: Tale of Desperaux
As we gear up for our new MA in Storyboarding and Previsualisation, starting in November 2019, we're running some taster days so that prospective applicants can get a feeling for the content and structure of the course. 

Why storyboarding?
Storyboarding is a skill that is much in demand - industry tells us that we are currently experiencing a skills shortage here in the UK, as a growing number of animation studios search for talent to bring their stories to life. The course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn storyboarding, whether for animation, live action, commercials, (or even your own personal projects).

Course Design
The course has been designed with industry in mind; industry engagement is the heart of all of our courses and students will work on a live industry brief as part of this course.

Taster day
The taster day is designed to give students a feel for what storyboard artists do. Working with traditional pencil and paper and also digital tools, students will create their own storyboard from scratch, working up a board from start to finish, ending up with a digital video file complete with music and sound effects. To sign up, follow this link.

Course Tutor
Iliana Franklin is the tutor for the taster day. Iliana is a veteran of many animated film projects - you can see her extensive IMDB profile here.  Iliana also runs her own production company Mediaframe.  You can see more about her work at her online portfolio.
