The art of communicating visual ideas to co-collaborators, clients, or prospective funders can be a challenge at best. For animators, the process we have built around this problem is called "The Pitch." In this workshop we will use rudimentary drawing skills, simple tools, and basic boarding techniques to help filmmakers explore visual ideas, present narrative solutions, and even plan out difficult scenes long before the camera begins rolling.
