Description

Before a movie "moves" it must be planned and drawn to accompany the screenplay. Enter the storyboard: akin to a cinematic comic book, it has been become an art form unto itself. Students gain inspiration with examples of storyboards from the films of Hitchcock, Spielberg and Christopher Nolan, and then move on to draw their own storyboards. Students learn movie production terminology with an emphasis on camera vocabulary as they adapt scenes for the proper format. Drawing efficiently is a focus as students learn skills that will help them make better movies in the future.

Description

Every film worth remembering had a poster that was meant to create excitement as part of an advertising campaign. This course is all about the movie poster: its history in the world of cinema, and how to create one of your very own! You'll take on the role of graphic designer as you learn about vector drawing while using the most popular digital tool for poster design, Adobe Illustrator. As you become more confident with the design workflow and look for the best combination of type and picture, your posters become more complex. By the end of the course, you will have created four original posters, selecting a favorite project for a portfolio-quality print.

Whether bat cave, an interplanetary battlefield, or an alchemist's laboratory, scenic design in the movies takes the setting from a book or screenplay and gives it cinematic reality. In this course, students discover how to design setting for the movies by interpreting written descriptions into drawings and then architectural dioramas. Lessons in perspective drawing, lighting and photography help them turn models into images that can be projected onto a big screen.
