Plan Nine From Outer Space!
We have finally arrived at the "Plan 9" portion of my storyboarding class. For my students, I am posting some screen shots of this very special and favorite film so that they can take a look and fix the shots. For the rest of you, click to enlarge the images and look back fondly at those happy midterm times. The images are sequential, but only cover a little less than half of the film's length.
The twelve shots shown have been chosen because each presents the question of good composition. Do these work? Are they visually pleasing and lead the viewer's eye while staying focused on the story? What can you do, using the methods and terminology we have discussed up to this point? Some are very obviously correctable and others may be less so. Give these a "shot" and we'll review your progress on next week. The aspect ratio is 1.33:1 if you couldn't tell work no smaller than a 5:3.75 inch panel and do these in your sketchbook. If you have questions email me. Good luck.
