Storywriting

Shot Script Overview: Shooting-Script

Weirdogs- Cloud Ass: Story Paradigm Example:

This is a basic breakdown of a story paradigm for the character Cloud-ass. I’ve added an image of the character to add to the individuality of the story as it sits amongst 30 other similar short animations. Wierdogs Story Paradigm

Exercise Week1:

Create Your 3 Story paradigms. These should be simple 5 sentence pieces:

=  act 1- the scene is set
=  plot point 2- trigger
=  act 3- the journey
=  plot point 4- climax
=  act 5- the outcome of the events.

– Select the strongest of the paradigms above and create a more fleshed version of that scenario as outlined below:

Location Shooting Etc

 

Notes: Scouting Locations:

  1. Know your script.
    IUn this case think of your theme when looking for locations
  2. Scout at the right time.
    When is the shot best? Look at timing… food at lunchtime? Activity during a soccer game. Find out when things are happening?
  3. Look at light.
    Where can you reasonably expect the light tobe? Will it be pointing directly at the camera? Check light conditions for your equipment.
  4. Follow the sun.
    Outdoors need light too… or do they? Is the sun pointing at camera at a certain time?
  5. Check for power supplies.
    Will batteries be enough? What equipment wil you be using?
  6. Listen to the Space
    Can you use the sound in place or will it have to be replaced? Is it too noisy/windy etc.? Is there music etc that will suit a shot?
  7. Examine the elements.
    Rain, Sleet, Sun etc but also external factor such as janitors or deliveries etc.
  8. Decide where to set up.
    Where is the best shot with all this in mind? Where is the action space?
  9. Get permission
    Do you need permission to shoot here? Ask people’s permission etc…
  10. Evaluate the area.
    What is happening in the area? Will there be interference? Wifi? Phone etc….
  11. Take notes!
    Take Phots, thoughts and notes on the locations. Lighting needed? Sound set up needed? Transitions and shot ideas.
