11/9/19 - 10:30am-4:30pm (with a break for lunch). If you ever want to pitch an idea for a movie, you'll need to know how to present your story to people who can help you get it made. This full-day workshop (with a break for lunch included) is being taught by C. A. (Conor) MacFinn who received a grant from the Arts Council of Rockland / NYS Council on the Arts for story development and storyboarding of his animated short film,”Ariel”. Activities in the workshop will include learning about different story structures and narrative concepts and translating them into workshop participants' own, unique visual language.
Conor will walk through the creation of the storyboards for "Ariel", to demonstrate how the process works. Then, participants will develop a story of their own and create story boards, or a “beat outline” to illustrate it.
This is a free, public workshop for adults, high schoolers and (with parental accompaniment) 5th to 8th graders.
