Last of the Pretty Girls

Hey, I finally finished a thread! Next I gotta finish that Legacy Panel series.


For those of you printing them out to keep, I know the numbers are all screwy. The electromagnetic currents here in the temple are all goofed up - that's the problem. But seriously, there's no real order to the information, so don't sweat it. I'll try to be more organized in the future.

couldn't post yesterday for some reason Mark, thanks for the info from the last few posts... I guess I'll ask another dumb question, but is there a rhythm to the boarding, in that, can you do CU,CU,CU, or do you have guidelines you try and follow as far as types of shots within a sequence...

Does that make any since???

Steve said...

DUH!!!

Steve said...

DOH!!! darn enter button, I just read the threads in the post below and you kind of already answered my question Mark, but I have another...

How do you practice boarding if you don't have a script to work from, I feel like I'm cheating if I get a script to a film that's already been made, since it's already been boarded and filmed???

Hey Mark, thanks for these guides - the text alone makes them worth keeping around. I was wondering if you have any advice on caricature? I'm trying to improve on that end and it seems like you might have something good to say. Thanks!

Hey Steve-
I'm not sure, can't you board your own original idea? We don't work from scripts around here much these days...I would say come up with a list of story points that make up a short idea and board it. Or there's places on the web to downlaod scripts - could you go to one of those sites and download a script for a movie you haven't seen? Would that help?

Hey Bill - I don't know much about caricature other than apparently I'm an easy target for such. I would just look t the great caricature artists and see how they do it. John K's blog and Katie Rice's blog have a lot of good info on caricature. Check 'em out. I'll poke around and see if I have any info to post on that.

Woops. I guess that answer you gave to 'steve' remarking on your lack of scripts these days answers my own on the end of 'what's different'...

carry on.

Thanks for your hard work!

By 'answered' I mean that no one in their right mind (that is, thinking visually, punny that) would have characters talking incessantly.

It's often the last thing an visual artist wants their characters to do in a scene...and the easiest (and often only) way for a writer to demonstrate a character's inner thoughts. If you haven't been using scripts for a while then...

...I guess the 'on-the-nose' nattering is a result of someone omitting the screentime necessary for pantomime. Phooey.
