final project, homework

~The Storyboard~ Part 2: After

The storyboard process as mainly how I predicted it to be, easy but hard at the same time. While my group works well together, we are all really busy individuals so it took some time for all of us to sit together and come up with the main storyboard. We also all do realize that while we have the main idea of what the storyboard should be, it is always open to being edited. By keeping this in mind, I think, it will allow us to have a little more flexibility during the filming process in case we run into any complications.

In the near future, I hope that we write down a complete script. While our storyboard has stage directions and words written on it, I think a literal script would be helpful. I might feel this way because I was a theatre kid and seem to prefer to read blocking, stage direction, actions, and dialogue in a script format. I do believe that my group can pull this off without adding on more work to the whole project.

Concerning the reading and the final project, there is one main point. The biggest point the article makes is that today the main form of self expresion and creativity, is to create a combination of works previously produced in the past. This can be encorporated into the final project by referenceing pop culture and humor from our past and “remixing” it so it has purpose in the project.

~The Storyboard~ Part 1: Before

Creative direction is an extremely difficult thing. While my final project group and are making the starting efforts of putting together an awesome project, it is difficult because every individual on the planet has a different creative process. So, as in any project, it is somewhat difficult to get all of our amazing ideas into one cohesive storyboard, but I am sure we will get there. We are working steadily towards building our own storyboard and I hope to continue in this direction. All of us are communicating very well and I hope that we continue doing this. My group currently has a GoogleDocs, GoogleSlides, and a GroupeMe set up that we are all actively using, and I am extremely confident that we will be carrying this out throughout the whole entire project.

So far our storyboard is quite small due to the fact that our hectic schedules are keeping us from making a full storyboard in one sitting. We are also planning on taking pieces from each of our personal storyboards to create the final storyboard that we will use to film the project in it the end.  I look forward to updating what our process will be like after the storyboard is complete!
