Storyboarding for Film and Animation

Understanding the rules of storyboarding, camera angles and conveying emotions on the screen



Start date: TBC

Location: InnoCentre, 72 Tat Chee Avenue, InnoCentre, Kowloon Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong

*A professional certificate* will be awarded by Krystal Institute upon completion of the course.

In this course, you will learn the main principles of storyboarding for Film and Animation. Filmmaking is an art form in itself and the best filmmaking is when you are able to convey your idea without disturbing the viewer with strange camera angles, directions of cuts. 


That´s why it is important to know how to pre-plan your film. Storyboarding is just that - the blueprint of your film, or any film.

It is a cheaper way to understand whether your story is working or not before even starting the production. 

Here I´m going to teach you how to use camera angles, framing, and pacing to deliver strong story beats.

You will get a quick course on perspective and why is that important when you storyboard.

Also, you will learn how to draw fast. Because when you are in production working for a big company, you will need to produce a lot of panels per day. And for that, speed is even more important than clean drawing. 

We will use Storyboarder software to apply storyboarding and pitches to the story development process as animation.

Storyboarder is  a storyboarding app, which allows you to create stories from boards. You can make these boards quickly by simple drawing or using various tools available through the platform.

It’s an effective way to tell stories if you need something quite quickly, although you can also create long-form and elaborate stories with it.
