|Iliana Franklin teaches at Escape Studios|
Throughout this week, Iliana has been teaching a practical and industry-led approach to storyboarding, using both traditional drawing skills and also digital techniques.
Our students were challenged to create a short storyboard piece to a professional standard, and were encouraged to utilise skills such as gesture drawing, to make their characters as expressive as possible.
Iliana is not only a storyboard artist and an animator. She also runs her own production company Mediaframe. You can see more about her work at her online portfolio.
Storyboarding is a skill that every film-maker needs at some point in their career, even if they don't draw well or find drawing a struggle. Being able to express a sequence of shots visually is one of the key skills in narrative storytelling, and we take seriously the need to give our students all the skills needed to become successful film-makers.
