Animating Short Stories
Author(s): Cheryl Briggs

Whether you're a novice making your first film or a more advanced animator looking to strengthen an existing concept, Animating Short Stories provides practical techniques to bring your story to life. Each technique is clearly and beautifully illustrated covering different animation mediums; including 2D, 3D and stop-motion.

It takes readers step by step through:

- how to develop story ideas
- to prepare for creative obstacles
- scriptwriting and storyboarding
- each chapter provides clear examples and full colour images from award-winning student films as well as commercial examples from big studios

In addition, a companion website includes a specially created short film demonstrating key visual storytelling and narrative techniques alongside the student movies featured throughout. Also included are documents pertaining to sample production schedule and shotlists, screenplay templates, style guides and cheat sheets.



Review(s):
“Richly illustrated with examples throughout, Briggs explores the process of animating short stories from the conception of the initial idea, through the challenges of story development, before ending with insights galore drawn from her own experiences of short-form animation production. Offering a delightful mix of practical examples and useful theory, Animating Short Stories will surely become a valuable reference for aspiring storytellers the world over.” —Chris Pallant, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK
