A lot of teaching has been going on over the last couple of months in my new role as a senior lecturer on the BA Graphic Media Design course at LCC.
I wrote a project several years back because something had been drawing me to explore narrative meaning in the abstract. I'm glad to say that I delivered Five Frame Sequence workshop to a group of 20 BA GMD students on Thursday 20 November and with a few exceptions the project was a success. I will deliver the project again next week and then publish some of the results on here.
Here's the blurb for the workshop:
FIVE FRAME SEQUENCE (25 students)
“The ‘infinite canvas’ is a challenge to think big; a series of design strategies based on treating the screen as a window rather than a page”
Scott McCloud cartoonist and theorist
We will be looking at the infinite canvas that allows the designer to control the elements needed for producing time-based outputs. Through the investigation of the works of Hitchcock, Kubrick and Campion you will combine a range of elements to create a compelling story.
You will need a notebook and a camera
