Storyboarding is always fun at Cogswell

The thumbnails for my storyboard sequence

I’ve just turned in my second project for the storyboard class that’s taught here at Cogswell by Dave Perry (who is a really great teacher).  For this project we boarded a scene about five people traveling through a jungle where one of the guys parts off from the group and then dies then the others have to turn around and find him.  We have to remember to keep screen direction consistent and our climax in mind.  We also had to have at least three camera moves, I had more than that I’m sure.  Unfortunately, I do not have the storyboards to show, but I do have some of my many thumbnails I did for the project, so I’ll show you a few of those.  It was really fun to do, I wish I had had just one more day to polish everything off.  I ended up doing around 80 panels or something like that.  I’m very excited for our next project where we get to storyboard a script.


Cogswell Alumna Lectures in India

Friday, July 23rd, 2010


2009 Digital Arts and Animation graduate Lilly Vogelesang, now a technical consultant for Toon Boom Animation Inc, presented a lecture and demonstration on using storyboard software to streamline and simplify the storytelling process to a crowd of student filmmakers at SRM Sivaji Ganesan Film Institute in Chennai, India.

“It saves a lot of time and money for the producers. The trick is to get into the practice of storyboarding and rehearse each scene,” said Vogelesang.

The event was covered by The Hindu newspaper.
