Tutorial 02 – Storyboarding a Short Film

An overview of my Storyboarding Process

I spent the 2nd half of 2011 working on the ‘Last Guitar Hero’ – an ambitious short film that was shot in ‘1st person perspective’ and in Stereoscopic 3D. This short tutorial covers the storyboarding stage for the film and details my workflow during these pre-production stages.

In a nutshell, my method of storyboarding involves using Photoshop and After Effects together so I can create a storyboard & animatic at the same time. For an animated production, or a Video production that relies on CGI & Visual FX, I think a method like this is timesaving and helpful! You can follow the link above to view the tutorial on my second website, ‘LastGuitarHero.com,’ which has been setup specifially for my short film. The short film was part of my final honours year assessment and is sadly yet to be completed. It will be, one day!
