John Hart workshops with StoryBoard Quick

Last weekend, StoryBoard Quick was proud to sponsor the StudentFilmmakers.com pre-production workshop with John Hart!  Hart is an experienced director, writer, and artist who has created and taught pre-production storyboards for years.

The attendees walked away with a wealth of information and advice from Hart, from the importance of previsualization to design elements to keep in mind and even some simple ways to draw storyboards!  We at PowerProduction Software know that being a creative doesn’t necessarily come with the ability to draw, which is why we happily sponsored the event and even gave away StoryBoard Quick 6 to a lucky attendee!

StoryBoard Quick’s artwork gives directors and producers libraries of Characters, Props, and Locations to make storyboarding a snap!  Rotating Characters drop into the frame with ease and look great with the accompanying artwork in a fast, intuitive interface designed to help you create fantastic storyboards in a fraction of the time.

StoryBoarding for Students

We at PowerProduction often talk about how invaluable pre-production is to the film making process, and how helpful our customers have found our storyboarding software. But we don’t always emphasize how students find our software applicable to different academic subjects.

We here at PowerProduction often talk about how invaluable pre-production is to the filmmaking process, and how helpful our customers have found our storyboarding software.  But we don’t always emphasize how students find our software applicable to different academic subjects.

As a college student and intern at PowerProduction, I’ve found StoryBoard Quick and StoryBoard Artist to be a great tool for my projects in any class that requires planning or creativity.  I’ve used StoryBoard Quick for easy, simple sketches of page layouts in my Document Editing class, and StoryBoard Artist for fully-functional, in-depth renderings of my design projects.
