“[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

Week 6 2013- A New Year for 'Visual Story'

Hey all,

Apologies for this frantically short and quick message. Will be making a post which should be up by Friday which will recap on some of the things we touched on in the 'Sequential Narrative' lecture and tutes, plus uploading a copy of the images and points to Learning @ GU.

A couple of quick things:
Make sure next week you have an idea or draft of the story you want to do for final assessment. Shoot me an email if you need any help at pmason83@gmail.com

Some students last year (and a few mentioned in the tute) that they were going to use their scripts from 'Scriptwriting'. DO THAT! It's easy- you could virtually start thumb-nailing and gathering references now ;)

Also, I noticed the majority of the class turned up for the first tute, leaving only a handful or less of students for the second tute. The problem is I will struggle to touch base with you guys/give feedback and help for all of you in the first class, whereas the afternoon session, I had plenty of time to chat with the guys in the afternoon...Trust me when I say, the students last year who gained more out of the course were the ones that communicated with me, rather than the ones who ducked off early or didn't share anything. At the end of the day, it meant some stuff came across as "undercooked" or didn't make a whole lot of sense. I would love to be able to help people or point in the right direction, given the opportunity ;D

Will touch base again in a day or two with notes/images etc. from Tuesday's classes, take care all. Next week I also want to see the Koala exercise, and maybe the results of some of your thumbnailing from Tuesday. Remember, scribble it down quick! Don't noodle on something that doesn't work ;D

Cheers, folks!
