More on Storytelling

Story Acts Breakdown

Story Acts Breakdown with Star Wars as an example

Whilst digging deeper into concept art and pre-production, I still go and review the main concept behind the project..I look back through my notes and see if the story could use some tweaking..Is there even a core idea I want to convey? Should an episodic format be treated differently than a feature length or self contained short film? Perhaps..

I’m lucky to have come across these videos by Doug TenNapel (Earthworm Jim) talking about storytelling in a lecture he has done in Art Institute Inland Empire…Some very good points within the 52-minute lecture…certainly great watch to those who are interested in storytelling in general..I plan to re-watch it over and over just to have it simmer in my thick skull..Also, bonus video of him talking about his process of making a graphic novel. Enjoy!
