Hello everyone!  Happy August!

To start us off this month, I wanted to share a few fantastic videos by The Royal Ocean Film Society that analyze storytelling in film and animation.

To start us off, this video analyzes Brad Bird's directing style; an interesting hybrid of live action and animation techniques that make for very interesting, playful and effective storytelling.

Secondly, this video explores how to use staging for better storytelling, especially when limited by your story's location:

And last but not least, the following video discusses the role of sound in storytelling in a visual medium

Well, that's it for now!  Until next month: happy art-making! ♦
