Using the memory of an event or an individual experience, the participants will be taken through the process of writing a story. Visualising and illustrating the story, they will each represent this sequence as a storyboard.
The storyboard might lend itself to becoming a novel, a film, an animation or perhaps even an interactive device. The inputs in this module will include basics of creative writing, drawing, illustration and visualisation.
With basics of colour theory, typography and logo design, the participants will learn to design their own personal identity. With relevant printing and software inputs, they could proudly carry a self-designed visiting card and personal stationary. Branding and graphic design inputs as well as understanding the user's mind-set becomes a necessary part of the creative process in this module.
After storyboarding, using basic photography with one's phone camera, or a proper camera, and capturing a sequence of frames, the student can create an original stop motion animation. Adding music and effects as required, the output can be both innovative and most satisfying.
Thus, the students would have understood the complex process of film and animation and how hard it is to create moving graphics. This will also urge each one to look into moving graphics as an amalgamation of many parts, which though small, can make or break a story.
