Week 6 Exercise: These isn't one, but...
To allow you to play catch up, and because there weren't enough machines in the lab to go around, I want you all to get to the same point in regards to your inclass exercises thus far (i.e.: FINISHED), but also in regards to your progress on your final assessment.
That is: have your story at least "beat"ed out in points (1. this happens, 2. then this happens etc.) in a loose 3 act structure. Thouse that are working from pre-existing scripts, make sure they are 2-3 minutes. And in this case, start thumbnailing ;D
Use references for thumbnails/roughs for concept designs etc.
If you don't have a story yet, start brain storming NOW! You all should have an idea, like I hit you up for about a week or 2 ago, use vertical or lateral thinking to start jogging your brain into nutting out your character/s and their short 2-3 minute journey.
Like what you ultimately pick, as it is a bit of work to do, you want to enjoy designing, drawing, creating and telling the story, yes? Yes. Good. :D
> What Genre? Does it need one?
> What's it about?
- Inciting incident
- complication/s and escalation
- low point, which leads to
- Resolve: return to status quo or 'new world order'.
> What's the Style? How do you want it to look?
(And start finding references, and arranging them into a files structure/matrix for YOUR benefit and assessment :D )
Have fun, and email me if you need assistance/sounding board :D
