OCA creative challenges: Visual storytelling

This is the second of our weekly workshops as part of OCA’s Creative Challenges campaign. In the first you were introduced to the basics of stop motion, if you missed it, you can find it here.

This time we’re going to explore visual storytelling.

Visual storytelling is a story or narrative told mainly through visual media. This could be video, animation, or illustration, and it’s usually accompanied with music, a narrator or graphics. 

In this workshop, you will develop your own story based on the classic structure of ‘The Hero’s Journey’, and will work through from writing to creating a visual animatic.

Click through the slideshow below or download the PDF for later. This is a basic introduction suitable those looking for a new challenge or something to keep the kids entertained.
