THE EGG- Storyboarding Assignment for Schoolism Class

    I mentioned a while back that upon winning a free subscription to Schoolism, I decided to further my education & add to my skill set by taking the "Storyboarding with Kris Pearn" course. Since then, I haven't really shared much from the class. Below the break is my work for the third assignment. The assignment was as follows:
     -Students are to create a rough storyboard of a simple two character set up, wherein they establish a stageline for the board.  A third character is to enter the sequence which will require the adjustment of the stageline to accommodate the story.

     Two Characters are in an argument over an EGG.  A THIRD Character enters the scene and changed the argument (as in, the argument escalates, diffuses, refocuses... your call).   Either one of the characters, or the camera crosses the stageline in order to resolve the scene.  Try to create a simple story with a beginning, middle, and end.

     Students with demonstrate the practical use of camera continuity in service of telling a simple character story with a beginning, middle and end.

    I'm pretty pleased with it, but I wanted to share it with all of you as well as get your feedback & constructive criticism. (You can click the images or right click & open in a new tab to view them larger. Which ever is easiest for you, of course!)
