The storyboard job is a photo editing technique where you get to choose your camera lens, and the shot you get are a series of drawings or other images and are then converted into a photo. Usually this is done in a few weeks and can be a great way to get your hand on some new skills before starting a new job.
I’ve been looking for a storyboard job for a while so I just had a few to share. The first was for “A Tale of Two Cities” and it was easy to see why. This is one of those books that I’ve always wanted to edit and couldn’t afford to do it, but this job gave me the opportunity to see the book I’ve been working on for a long time in a new light.
The other was for a story about an alien who takes on a human form and becomes an alien. This is one of those ideas that we never really know if it has a potential life and I was lucky enough to be able to see this in action in the hands of the talented Tim Kiefer.
I really love how Tim Kiefer is able to use his powers to make his characters seem more fully rounded, and with this book I saw this happen again and again. Tim does a great job of making the characters more fleshed out than they’ve ever been in a book I’ve read. I would have loved to have seen the aliens be more like the humans, but I loved it when I saw how well Tim translated the characters into a new medium like this.
When I was about to start a new book, the only thing I knew about it was that it was about a bunch of people who were trying to save the world from aliens. That sounds a bit silly to me, so I was just happy to see that Tim had come up with something different. It gives the book a completely different feel; it’s a little bit like watching an old movie with a new camera.
I can’t say I was surprised by the outcome of the plot though. The thing about Tim’s book is that you don’t really get to see the characters until the end, but you do get to see the process by which someone decided to write a book, which is what this book does. The book’s written by the same person who created the movie, so Tim is clearly following in his footsteps.
I’m not necessarily saying that it’s a bad thing, just different. You can’t really say that Tim’s book is the result of his “writing” process because it’s not. You can call it “timing”, but it’s not really a “timing” either. Tim is following a clear “rule”, but it’s not a rule that he has to follow.
Its interesting to think about the writing process of books as one of the main job tasks of a creative person, and it’s also interesting to think of the book as the result of a specific process. The process is not something you just “follow.” Its not like you just put all your ideas down and start writing. You don’t just sit down and start writing a novel. Its a process that you do, but its not really a process at all.
This is the second time I’ve had to use this technique on a book. If you’re having a hard time writing, try to be as creative as possible.
The process is simple, but not easy to write well. The first thing I do is look through my notes and see what I can come up with, then I start to make the outline, then I start to draw out the storyboard, and then lastly I make the storyboard. I also try to keep the process of writing as simple as possible.
