The Art of Visual Storytelling
I took the plunge and took a three week course called The Art of Visual Storytelling recently and I'm so glad that I did. Since the price was right ($15), I couldn't imagine passing up the opportunity.
Although I don't have a background in drawing or animation, I figured the class would get the juices flowing and inspire me with other projects -- and that's exactly what it did! I also figured the teacher, Daniel Gonzales, an Animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios, would be able to pass on some valuable knowledge that I'd be able to take with me anywhere. And I was right. He turned out to be a really good teacher with patience and an ability to present the basic principles of the craft for people like me who have no background in it.
Here are a couple of the images that I came up with for the class:
Now I'm looking forward to continuing the creativity in my writing and video production.
