The very nature and narrative requirements of sequential art narrative, such as comics, familiarize the designer with the concept and function of the shot. On the other hand, the director sees the film by simply reading a script and needs to give a first form to his vision. Through examples of top collaborations such as that of Alejandro Jodorovsky with Moebius, but also the presentation of storyboards of famous films, we will see that the storyboard, apart from being a tool for the precise execution of the production of a film, is the point where the Idea becomes an Image. During the seminar participants will be given the opportunity to take part in an interesting creative exercise.
