Hyper Island is stoked to be able to invite you to this unique workshop with storyboarding artist David Russell! Join Hyper Island students to learn from the best when it comes to the storyboarding process. Welcome to join this 2 day intensive workshop designed to give particpiants practical tools, an insider look at how a script can be enhanced through creative storyboarding and how it’s used by prominent directors to realise exactly the film they envision. The workshop is a part of the Hyper Island's 2 year Motion Creative program curriculum and for this one time only, also open for external participants. Storyboarding is a critical phase of film pre-production. The director and storyboard artist collaborate to produce a series of almost comicbook-like panels, which serve to visualize for the director how his or her film will be shot. Storyboarding is equally valuable to large, moderate, and low-budget productions. It aids the director during the entire film-making process, from pre-production to editing, to communicate efficiently with the cast and crew, ensuring that everyone in the production understands exactly what he or she is trying to achieve. Storyboards also help improve shooting efficiency and keep the show on budget. David Russell has designed concepts and storyboards for over 80 films including Star Wars – Return of the Jedi, Batman, The Wolverine, Moulin Rouge, The Thin Red Line and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. During the 2 day workshop you'll be able to follow as he analyzes sequences which he has boarded for prominent films, and how they were eventually shot and edited. He will also discuss visual planning methods of cinematic masters. The topics are illustrated with film clips, graphics, and storyboard sequences and concept illustrations from a selection of notable films. Each session closes with a question and answer period.
