Story Time With Mia

This is a circle for those who have a passion for storytelling, story structure, and of course storyboarding! We’ll cover the structure of a feature, and the structure of a scene, along with using camera language and blocking to tell your story visually.

Mentee Criteria

Exp Level:
Student (last year of study)
0-1 Year

I am self-taught, and my ideal mentee is a bright upcoming artist that has a lot of ideas but needs help in executing them.

This mentorship will be most useful to someone looking to build portfolio samples or develop personal ideas. Therefore I would like to mentor someone who does not yet have much professional experience.

Meeting Times & Dates

Please note: Meeting times and dates are subject to change by your Circle Mentor

Times Per Month:  Twice per month

Dates:  Every other Sunday

Meeting Times:  Afternoons TBD (PST)
