Check them out and go grab a pizza from @thegiambancos! You won't regret it!
Being a Director for me is a job made up of so many parts. One of my favourite skills set is something that goes back to being 5 years of age where I was having a set of pencils and a drawing pad to create sketches and comic strips beat out anything.
The love of drawing as a kid enabled me later professionally to draw my own own storyboards and concepts sketches. Its the best way to think through a script and for me to work out how I’m to edit the film post shooting. I love having drawn all my frames, cut them out, and stuck them to the back of my chalkboard wall at home, the move and detract the frames as if its the actual raw footage itself.
Its a great discipline to feel out the film you want to make and trust me helps you time wise make your your shooting day and as you have the safety net of the storyboard to work from time, plus agencies really appreciate you walking into meetings with them under your arm!
