SPRING VIRTUAL SEMINARS:
WHAT MAKES AN ATMOSPHERE:
The Visual Preparation for a FIlm Through Mood Boards and Storyboards Series
This is a three-part seminar that focuses on what makes a film visually distinctive, and how mood boards and storyboards can be used in the pre-production process to help the director, the cinematographer, the costume designer, the art director, and the rest of the crew envision the right atmosphere for the film - and choose the right tools to do so.
The goal of this seminar is also to encourage even Screenwriting students to develop mood boards for their stories, as they can be a useful tool during the screenwriting process as well.
FEB 14, 2023 @ 10:00-11:30 AM EST
PART I: MOOD BOARDS
What are mood boards, and why are they important?* Can they be useful for screenwriters (during the development phase) as well, and how?
FEB 21, 2023 @ 10:00-11:30 AM EST
PART II: STORYBOARDS
How do mood boards influence storyboards?* How do we make a storyboard?
FEB 28, 2023 @ 10:00-11:30 AM EST
PART III: THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG? WHICH COMES FIRST?
Are mood boards useful only in the later stages of pre-production? Is there even a right way to approach the development and pre-production process, or can we shake things up and start with the parts of pre-production which are usually reserved for the later stages in the process of making a movie, only after a story (or script) is already set in stone? REQUIRED WORK: Participants will be asked to produce mood boards and storyboards for their own projects. We will discuss their own exercises and work during the seminar. They will also be asked to watch Vida Skerk's short film “Night Ride” beforehand, as this film and the material made during the preparation for this project will be used as examples during the seminar.
