Animated Storytelling is an approachable and easy-to-follow guide that teaches students how to create memorable stories using animation and motion graphics. The book’s friendly tone and boiled-down ideas take them through the stages of concept development, pre-production, storyboarding, and design (including colour, world building, and sound) with clear examples and easy-to-follow assignments. With an emphasis on pre-visualization, technique selection, and experimentation, this book provides illustration students, graphic design students, and animation students, with useful tools to help get their designs moving with meaning at any budget.
