Description - Directing the Story by Francis Glebas

Francis Glebas, a top Disney storyboard artist, shows how to reach the ultimate goal of animation and moviemaking by showing how to provide audiences with an emotionally satisfying experience. Directing the Story offers a structural approach to clearly and dramatically presenting visual stories. With Francis' help you'll discover the professional storytelling techniques which have swept away generations of movie goers and kept them coming back for more. You'll also learn to spot potential problems before they cost you time or money and offers creative solutions to solve them. Best of all, it practices what it preaches, using a graphic novel format to demonstrate the professional visual storytelling techniques you need to know. * Uses the classic story of '1001 Arabian Nights' to show how to storyboard stories that will engage an audience's attention and emotions. * With 1001 drawings in graphic novel format plus teaching concepts and commentary. * All of the storyboarding examples have a real project context rather to engage a very visual audience on their own terms and teaches through demonstration.
