Frame I | The Storm Before the Calm
Description: Pre-Production [2 months]

Pre-Production is absolutely an essential step in the process of making an animated feature or visual effects based film. The process which begins by an idea/concept involves refining the story/plot into a screen presentable format as a screenplay. This follows designing and illustrating characters and environments leading all the way up to a storyboard or a pictorial representation of your film as a sequence of sketches. In this frame, you get to learn a lot of things from basic illustration to human anatomy, from clay sculpting to understanding the nuances of Photography. In a nutshell, you set the ground for your production to begin.
