The role of the storyboard artist is one of the most creative and visionary elements of the production team.

Knowing drawing and animation techniques represents an incredibly marketable skill set in today's visually driven world.

Already a community of film makers, writers, artists, illustrators and idea-makers has grown exponentially around my first storyboarding course and I would love you to be a part of this group and share your work.

Hi! Thank you for checking out Drawing for Storyboarding. This is a fun, engaging course that will teach you how to draw for Animation Storyboards.

First, you’ll learn how to draw characters - how to draw good expressions and poses

From there, you’ll learn the best approaches to drawing suggested backgrounds for your boards - from rough blocking, to adding perspective, and how to draw depth and space in your panels.

You’ll also learn the best practices for story artists - these are the top directors’ tips and I’ll share them with you so that you know what is expected of professional story artists.

I’ll also share with you some sample storyboards of other students in the course series - this is going to be an amazing opportunity for you to not only see diverse examples of different styles of drawing; but importantly, to see how fellow students are approaching their assigments, and working.

There is an opportunity in this course to complete assignments and exercises for each of the topics covered; plus at the end, the class project for this course is to take a page of script and storyboard it out entirely yourself. I’m going to give this project to you as though you were working for a studio - so you’ll get model sheets and layouts, as well as the script and then it’s over to you to put everything that we’ve covered in the course into practice.

This course is a supplement to my successful storyboarding courses:

Learn to Storyboard for Film & Animation

and

Advanced Storyboarding Techniques

Both those courses cover in depth everything you need to know to about storyboarding - the technical aspects, the filmic language and the nuts and bolts of communicating your ideas for a story visually.

This course takes all of those concepts and principles and dials down into the actual process of drawing.

This course is aimed at beginners, so you don’t have to have taken the other storyboarding courses in the series - you could use this as a starting point in fact. If you have taken the other courses in the series, this is going to bump you up to the next level and ensure that you are able to draw fast, fluid, efficiently.

Great animation filmmaking is more than character design and making things move around in our favorite software; it involves crafting a solid story with interesting shots and voices to support it.  In "Animation Pre-Production", we cover

  • scripting compelling stories that have visual components

  • storyboarding with software

  • how to effectively choose visuals for your animation projects that best tell the story

  • voice recording - where to find actors and how to record voices in person

As an animated filmmaker, I've selected the best lessons I've learned over the years to present in this course and streamline the storytelling process for beginning animators and filmmakers. 

No supplies are necessary though I do recommend a few pieces of free software throughout the course, including CeltX and Storyboarder.   

Check out the trailer and free lectures to learn more, and see you in class!

H19: Generating Personas in Healthcare, Part 2, Plain&Simple

Information Systems (IS), or Information Technology (IT), as they are sometimes called, are playing a critical role in all our healthcare organizations today. They are permeating our hospitals, our clinics, our homes, our pharmacies and every aspect of our lives. If implemented correctly, they have the potential of making healthcare processes more efficient and maximizing patient and user experience. If implemented incorrectly, they can wreak havoc.

The topics covered in this "Beyond Personas in Healthcare" course are:

  • Observe our personas in their native environment

  • Build storyboards based on our personas in real life situations

  • Connect Big Data and Personas

  • Drafting Insights

  • Real World Cardiology Example

  • Build powerful innovative strategies based on insights

The basic concepts behind Healthcare Information Systems are often presented in a very complex, difficult to understand style. This "PLAIN AND SIMPLE" series on Healthcare Information Systems is different. It strives to introduce the basic concepts of information technology and systems in a very simple and easy to understand format using many examples from both non-healthcare and healthcare environments. This course is targeted at the entry level (Basic and Intermediate Level) learner.

The content of the series is based on the author's 35 years experience in the healthcare information systems business. This experience spans product design and launch, marketing, business development and executive management (including president). In addition, it is based on 15 years teaching at the graduate level in the University environment.
