!!> Reading ➻ Directing the Story ➳ Author Francis Glebas – Writerscompany.co.uk
The best book about story I ve ever read But no, I haven t read McKee s STORY yet, and this book does cite it as an important reference. Glebas not only shows how to approach storytelling through storyboarding, but also discusses many other aspects of writing and directing While the approach is quite traditional very Disney , I found it to still be useful for my own work. Amazing book on story and story telling It s aimed at storyboard artists, but I think it would be an interesting read for anyone who likes story and or film. Amazing This book really did not just open my eyes in ways of telling a story with pictures, but also storytelling overall The story told in the book kept me coming forOne of the few books in my life that I could not stop th Francis Glebas, A Top Disney Storyboard Artist, Teaches Artists A Structural Approach To Clearly And Dramatically Presenting Visual Stories They Will Learn Classic Visual Storytelling Techniques Such As Conveying Meaning With Images And Directing The Viewer S Eye Glebas Also Teaches How To Spot Potential Problems Before They Cost Time And Money, And He Offers Creative Solutions On How To Solve Them. Very educational and interesting, with a smattering of concepts from all over the world of storytelling and art The use of a story to help show examples of the concepts talked about is a huge help too. A mediocre book that does its job, but is a little bit annoying I definitely feelcomfortable with storyboarding after reading it Oh and if I recall there is a lot of namedropping which I abhor. Describes how to tell a story visually by zooming in on what is interesting in the shot Demonstrates the principles via an engrossing storyboard of 1001 Arabian Nights Visually explains how to set up character, dramatic irony, etc. The way he lived like he preached through the 101 nights reference story was nice Few books actually do that Although I prefer adirect approach in his text I experienced it was a bit too much Disney over it all Lots of double talk and very little actual and rewarding facts. This book is, as Animator survival kit, a book that I wish I had read earlier.Francis wraps up theory and practice in a gorgeous package that leaves no margin for confusion.It is really a great book.
