Course description

Storyboarding & Previsualisation (12 weeks)

Study the key skills in narrative storytelling

Our Storyboarding and Previz is a unique course incorporating several important disciplines. Our course teaches both disciplines that use traditional drawing skills (storyboards), or digital skills (previz). Storyboard artists and previz artists must solve many of the same problems, including shot flow, cinematography, narrative rhythm, and continuity.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Aged 18 or over, a good understanding of written and spoken English.
