“[A good artist is] one with imagination and the ability to tell a good story. How well a man draws cuts no ice with me, if what he’s trying to express comes out vague and choppy.” ‐ Jack Kirby
(Sherman cited in Morrow (ED.) 2004, (vol.1) p. 181).

LAST IN-CLASS EXERCISES TO DO: Updates for next week's Class- Wk 12

A couple of quick points before I post the Week 11 Tute clips and some assessment 2 info:

The week 10 lecture that Andi conducted on Layouts and Pre-Viz are in the 'Lecture notes' folder in th 'Course Content' tab at Learning @ GU. I recommend re-reading this in relation to making your layout shots for Assessment 2 (Visual Script development).

Also: for the In-Class Exericses: I want two extra things done, which should only take you 20-30 mins. (since we were unable to do this in class with numbers vs. computers available).

1: Go to the lecture notes for week 10 (Layout and Pre Viz). Andi suggested this:

Pick two shots from Toy Story 3 trailer and break them back down into the layers, levels, camera positions, timing and key pose set-ups.

Do this by making notes (just some dot points is fine), grabbing screen shots and creating a logical labeling code

2: The other one is, take the X-Men 2 sample script I gave out for the storyboarding exercise (if you don't have it, go to the "in Class Exercises' folder in the 'Course Content' tab, and go to 'Thumbnailing from a Script' section.

 I want a Mood board for the X-Men hallway/mansion scene sample- If "you" were the concept artist, how would that scene look? Grab images from the internet and make up a mood board as if you were then going to go off and create some concept art.

Getting clarification for the In-classes exercises, as the assessment sheet states this will due next week (week 12) in PDF format. Treat this as the due date until I can clarify.

There is a Guest Lecture on at 3pm at the Central Lecture theatre, by Professor INGO PETZKE https://learning.secure.griffith.edu.au/courses/1/2107GFS_3125_SB/content/_2420249_1/The%20Life%20and%20Works%20of%20Oskar%20Fischinger.pdf?bsession=99405869&bsession_str=session_id=99405869,user_id_pk1=56295,user_id_sos_id_pk2=1,one_time_token=
