Storyboard Artists: Drama, Comedy, Action? What's Your Voice?

This circle is intended for story artists that may have a couple of years of experience in the animation industry but are still struggling to find their own narrative style.

We will analyze different directors, genres and international films to try and see what makes them unique as well as other narrative mediums like video games and comic books. We will make film studies and exercises to try and bring all that knowledge to our own work.

And to tie it all up we will bring a variety of guest speakers to hear about their journey and how they bring their influences to their own work.
