Turning Ideas into Images Through Storyboarding

The Professional Master’s Degree Video Game Narrative of TECH trains creative experts to capture their stories on a storyboard to execute them in the best way in the final result.

Create a storyboard is so important to plan the story of a game or movies to capture the ideas in a visual way, in other words, to transform words into images, which will allow to have a creation script to preview the result. For that reason, the Professional Master’s Degree Video Game Narrative is focused on the creation of script and storyboard to help to the scriptwriter to express ideas visually, to explain precisely what you want to convey in each scene.

In this way, black and white or color models can be used, very well drawn or with just a few lines, they can also be hand-drawn or digital, but there are 3 main storyboard models:

  • Storyboards to use: This is the classic handmade one, no matter how well drawn or how detailed it is, the essence should be the same.
  • Thumbnails: This type of storyboard is not so different from the previous one, it is simply made in a smaller size.
  • Animated storyboard: These, instead of being simply drawn, are presented animated by actors, or even digitally with specialized programs.

Also, it is necessary to have a script that indicates the fundamental elements to be able to capture the scenes, sequences, animation frames that reflect the actions of the characters, description, movements, angles, observations, and others.
