Draw The Line[edit | edit source]
- Before You Start Drawing Storyboards, Look At This Floor Plan!
- Look at the floor plan for this movie. Then draw a line between the two people in the story. Unless they move or unless you move the camera while crossing the line, never jump across this line. Rule: You must never cut from a shot on one side of the line to a different shot on the other side of the line.
Be careful when you cross the line between the the Young Person and the Old Person.
- How This Works
