Tale of Despereaux
MA in Story & Previs
Our MA in Story & Previs launched in September teaches both story and previsualisation, allowing students to focus on two career pathways: using traditional drawings skills (storyboards), or digital skills (previs).

Storyboard artists and previs artists both have to solve many of the same problems, including shot flow, cinematography, narrative rhythm, and continuity.  Both work closely with the director and editor to bring the story to life.
