HOW TO COLLABORATE IN STORY
Virtual workshop completed over the course of three months to simulate a real story pipeline scenario. The director (me) will come to the group with a film I want to make. Each group member is assigned a part of the film to beat board and together the entire group must collaborate to complete a 60 panel storyboard of the entire feature to pitch at the end of the workshop. This class is designed to encourage growth in collaboration, story structure understanding and time management skills.
