Notes for Milestone 2

The idea here is to get your ideas onto paper or whatever as soon as possible. The faster you can get something visual down and TIMED the better. Don't go for pretty drawings. Boards -eps in this case- are supposed to be disposable. For years, Nelvana did their's on Post-it notes to facilitate removing, shuffling and tossing out panels/sequences.

That said, they must be readable. An educated client -not your mom-should be able to see what's going on without your narration.

This is your first visual slash at your story. Use it to plan. Plan location reuse. plan money shots. Plan where you're going to spend the most of your attention. This is an important milestone. (Not that they all aren't.)

I can't give you my opinion if you've got nothing to show. It wastes your time and tuition.
Next week-Week 4- we're going to have individual meetings 20 minutes each.I'll be asking you to bring your portfolio so I can see where you're at. Sign up sheet will be at our meeting this Thursday.
