GD3130 - Visual Narrative for Games

A picture is worth a thousand words and game stories can be intensified through the use of visual narratives. With the basic nature of human gestures and expressions, storytelling can come to life with dramatic influence. Students will examine the historical relevance of cinematography as it relates to game design. Incorporating visual elements into games and media begins with the preproduction process of storyboards and animatic design. Students will apply these preproduction processes and utilize video editing software to create animated storyboards as well as use in-game camera systems to create basic cinematics and scripted events in a game level.
