  4. 4. PRODUCTION DESIGN • To make these decisions we need to work from the script (screenplay)
  5. 5. THE SCRIPT • You have been given Scene 55 from a screenplay - READ IT • What is your response to it ? • Does it remind you of anything you know or have seen ? • What do you think is happening in the scene ?

  7. 7. MOOD BOARD TASK • In your groups you will create a mood board for Scene 55 • Try to communicate your ideas and feelings through collage • From the magazines, select parts of images and decide how you want to show them on the sheet of paper • Parts of the mood board can be abstract, working with colour, textures and atmosphere
  8. 8. SCRIPT BREAKDOWN - DESIGN ESSENTIALS • What design elements can you find in the script ? • Make a list of things that you need to make, build or find that are mentioned in the script • What other things have you included in your mood board that help build up the visual picture ?
  9. 9. PLAN (The Mudmap) • Where is everything ? • Make a plan of your initial thoughts of the setting of the scene • Where will the characters be placed ? • This does not have to be to scale, but try and imagine what the camera is seeing
  10. 10. “BLOCKING” • A process during which the director and actors determine where on the set the actors will move and stand, so that lighting and camera placements may be set.

  19. 19. STORYBOARD TASK • In your groups you will create a storyboard for Scene 55 • Try to visualise the action of the scene • Think about how the action will be framed - what type of camera shot will be used ? • Add the dialogue of the shot under each storyboard frame
  20. 20. STORYBOARD TASK • Keep it simple! You don’t need to be a great cartoonist to draw a great storyboard • No stick-men please! Try and draw how the characters might appear • The key is to include only what is necessary to communicate the action
