First you must write a story or composition. Then you can illustrate your story by creating a storyboard by using StoryboardThat.com app. It will resemble a comic strip.
This tool is used to breakdown a script or story in order properly communicate and visualize what a student is learning. I have used it in this course to illustrate the story of my personal musical journey during my childhood. Once it was recommended to me and I looked into it, I couldn’t stop using it.
Some of its available features and options are as follows:
- Background scenes can be selected to fill the entire cell, i.e. indoor, outdoor, historical scenes.
- Layout including the number of cells can be chosen
- Characters can be added and edited to change facial expressions and poses
- Props can be added that the characters can interact with
- Searches can be conducted to find additional props not provided in this app
- Drawings and photos can be uploaded
- Text boxes in various shapes and sizes can be added to indicate talking
- Fonts can be customized
- Captions can be added beneath each cell
I worked out thumbnails on paper in accordance with my story and for each new idea I created a new frame. I then created these frames on this app using the above features.
