Framed Ink - Marcos Mateu-Mestre
Call Number: PN6710 .M38 2010
ISBN: 9781933494957
Framed ink by Marcos Mateu-Mestre takes a concrete look at the tools available to visual storytellers of all kinds. Using pen and ink, Mateu-Mestre, a twenty plus year veteran of feature film animation, leads the reader through a "'Master's course' of visual storytelling," in the words of Jeffrey Katzenberg writing in his introduction to the book. Framed ink presents a concise framework in which to think about lighting, composition, perspective, continuity, casting, production design in terms of the impact on the telling your story, whether in a live-action film, animation, graphic novel, or single frame. Mateu-Mestre avoids technology issues and concentrates on the final image to help the reader apply his lessons to his/her media and needs.
