Revue de presse
"Francis Glebas has put together a really comprehensive and thought-provoking look at the art and craft of film making, specifically directing. His approach, which is to ask a lot of seemingly innocent questions, has much the same effect as the good storytelling he is trying to teach us.it draws us in and makes us think. I can't imagine anyone, in or out of our business, who won't find any number of helpful ideas as they work their way through the filmmaking jungles!!"--Roy Disney, Director Emeritus and consultant for The Walt Disney Company "Francis Glebas was one of our most talented storyboard artists at Disney, and it was our great fortune to have him on the story team. He has a wealth of experience to share."--Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO, Dreamworks Animation
"A veritable bible of visual storytelling techniques and advice. Loaded with pictures, the book is set up like a storyboard for the material she wants to convey. Covering everything from why we watch movies to the most effective ways to build and maintain drama, she teaches how to keep your audience riveted to the screen. And if you're worried that you may not have the drawing chops to create good storyboards, don't worry - she's on it. Even if you can't draw a straight line, she teaches how to use whatever you've got, the barest minimum of drawing skills, to create the most effective boards you can imagine. Ever wondered why you look where you do on the screen? It's not a coincidence, the director is pointing your attention in very specific directions. Glebas doesn't just tell you how to direct the eye, she explains the why of it - how our brain works and how the director plays with those elements to convince us that what is taking place on screen is real; and not just real but urgent and dramatic. The book covers everything a director needs to know in order to prepare the storyboard for an effective and memorable film. All you have to add is your story! Highly recommended for the following areas of study: Animation, Theatre, Film Studies at the high school, college, and university levels. And it's a must buy for libraries that collect texts on these subjects."--Animation World Network.com

- D'autre part, des centaines de dessins de storyboard (de type "thumbnails" = petites vignettes) sont pleins d'enseignements en ce qui concerne l'ébauche et la mise en place d'une composition.

The author answer that questions clearly and without technical-complicated language. It is important specially if you are an aspiring filmmaker with no previous training. It will help you having a big picture of the art of visual storytelling, to speak to the audience. After reading this book you will see movies differently. Though, as in any art craft, practice is the key but it is better when you have an idea of the path you have to walk.
I recommend to reed this book along with two others: the Invisible Ink and The Golden Theme by Brian McDonald.
The goal of this book is to help you get your audience "lost in the story" of your movie. It details a lot of professional directing techniques and principles to help aid storytelling. The writing is clear and Francis Glebas even storyboarded a whole short story to serve as an example, in addition to the many examples already provided.
Using storyboards as a primary tool, he goes through the various storytelling techniques used in films , like ways to pace/cut scenes, introducing themes and story structure subtly, directing the audience's eyes, creating characters people can related to, etc. Francis Glebas then breaks down these high level concepts into many smaller easy-to-understand points to focus in depth.
One particular point to note is the version of "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights" Francis Glebas has storyboarded to provided as an example throughout the book. All the techniques he teaches are used in the storyboard for that story. It ends with cliffhangers in every chapter. The story is absorbing even though it's done in sketches. Goes to show that story is still king.
This book is for anyone who wants to direct professional stories. It should be made compulsory reading in film schools. Two enthusiastic thumbs up from me.
For more reading, I would recommend Ideas for the Animated Short, which goes even further in depth with storytelling techniques. Bad stories shouldn't have excuses.
