I have 8 samples from this site…I thought we could pass them out to small groups and have them read their example. This gets us to start talking about summarizing. (It’s not really a minute per book, more like 20 seconds)
I will pass out my worksheet/notes on storyboarding. I will fix the two shots you said were MS. Then show Eldest…or one of Tim’s students’ example films. I HAVEN’T LOOKED AT THEM YET, BUT THE OTHER MEDIA ANALYSIS GAVE ME VIDEOS FROM HER CLASS. THERE’S ONE FROM “LORD OF THE FLIES” THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRETTY GOOD. AND ANOTHER ABOUT A BOOK CALLED, “SIDEWAYS ???” I’LL LOOK AT THEM TOMORROW.
I might make a separate handout for this, and I will keep it brief….they will have the handout to refer to when they make their storyboard.
WE MIGHT GET SOME HEAT ABOUT THE WOMAN IN THE BIKINI. CAN YOU CHANGE THIS ONE?
Divide into 4 groups. Give them each a portion of the story. Each group takes their portion and sketches out 5 shots…considering the variety of shots and angles. Then share and discuss. Then show Kara’s students interpretation of The Three Little Pigs. I HAVE THE VIDEO. HOWEVER, I DON’T HAVE THE STORYBOARD AS I THOUGHT.

How to create a 20 shot story? Storyboard the text Shoot each shot, one at a time In camera-editing (set up first shot, hit record, hit pause, then continue with second shot, third shot, etc.) Must rehearse
normal Shot is taken at a normal, everyday angle Eye-level
Low angle Camera is on ground or low…and looking up Subject on the screen is powerful or superior
High angle Camera looks down on the subject Subject on the screen is weak or inferior
dutch Angle is diagonal, crooked Suggests action or excitement Something abnormal is going on
Point of view Camera becomes the eye of the subject POV
