Creating a simple movie set

To do rough storyboarding with FrameForge 3D Studio, you do not need a movie set.
However, a movie set looks nice and helps you get orientated.
Therefore, I have built a movie set which you can download or there are optional instructions for people who want their own movie set.

What is wrong with these pictures?

Original

Manuelciosici rough 06.jpg

Manuelciosici rough 12.jpg

In this scene, the boy and the man become friends. How to I show that using the camera lens?

Something's wrong!!!!

Above is a rough storyboard. What is wrong with it?

The mood of the lenses

All of the shots use the same lens. In the next lesson, you learn that different lenses (different focal lengths) create different moods.
By using the same lens, there is only one mood for the entire story. That is wrong!!!

Corrected

Therefore, I start with a wide angle lens and end with a telephoto lens.

When two actors talk
Crystal Clear action bookmark.svg

Eye direction

Watch the eyes
When two people are talking, their eyes are pointed the opposite way. One points left and one points right.
Eyes right?
Not good
Both actors eye's point the same direction
Manuelciosici rough 13.jpg Manuelciosici rough 12.jpg


Their eyes cross!
Better
The actors' eyes point in different directions.
