Iliana teaches our new master's degree in Storyboarding and Previsualisation, which launched in September and is already producing some remarkably skilled and imaginative work.
Iliana's class will help our animation students learn the art and craft of storyboarding, a necessary part of the film-making process and a vital skill as our students get ready for their 2nd year studio projects.
About Iliana Franklin
She has also worked on various TV shows including Mecky and friends (1994), Hungarian Folk Tales (1992-1996), Spirou (1993–1995), and Carland Cross (1996).
Iliana also runs her own production company Mediaframe, a UK based creative consultancy, specializing in content development and production for illustrative, interactive and screen based media.
Storyboarding for Animators
Storyboard artists need basic skills such as a drawing, but they must also solve fundamental film-making problems including character performance, shot flow, cinematography, narrative rhythm, and continuity. On a feature film or TV series, board artists work closely with the director and editor to bring the story to life.
