Pressestimmen

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

Synopsis

Francis Glebas, a top Disney storyboard artist, teaches artists a structural approach to clearly and dramatically presenting visual stories. They will learn classic visual storytelling techniques such as conveying meaning with images and directing the viewer's eye. Glebas also teaches how to spot potential problems before they cost time and money, and he offers creative solutions on how to solve them. This title uses the classic story of '1001 Arabian Nights' to show how to storyboard stories that will engage an audience's attention and emotions. It contains 1001 drawings in graphic novel format plus teaching concepts and commentary. All of the storyboarding examples have a real project context rather to engage a very visual audience on their own terms and teaches through demonstration.

10 von 10 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT am 3. Mai 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Länge: 0:22 Minuten
Note the title is about directing the story, not directing the movie, and the emphasis is on the story.

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.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

8 von 10 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Vainamoinen am 1. Juni 2010
Format: Taschenbuch
Die vollfarbige, pompöse Aufmachung des Buches, das hervorragende Layout, die vielen großformatigen Storyboards, der reichliche, mehrspaltige Text: Die erste Sympathiewelle, die einen beim Aufschlagen für den Autor überkommt, ist gesichert. Francis Glebas' Erläuterungen bleiben in "Directing the Story" stets auf einem ausgesprochen umgangssprachlichen, grundsätzlichen Niveau (was das Englische für deutsche Leser sicher verständlicher macht). Der Aufbau des gesamten Buches ist wirklich sauber strukturiert; mit einem "Säulenprinzip" erklärt Glebas Kapitel für Kapitel, wie man den Zuschauer in den Bann einer visuell erzählten Geschichte ziehen kann. Zum Filmemachen und für Animatoren sind dies sehr wichtige Lektionen; umsetzbar sind praktisch alle Prinzipien jedoch sicher auch für Comiczeichner. Zentrales Element des Buches ist ein umfangreiches "1001 Nacht"-Storyboard, anhand dessen seine Leitsätze demonstriert werden. Die Storyboards füllen stets ganze Seiten, was auch das ungewöhnliche Format des Buches rechtfertigt. In den ersten Kapiteln passen die einführenden Storyboards noch nicht so ganz zum Text - das bessert sich jedoch im Verlauf des Buches.

Francis Glebas plaudert auch dankenswerterweise sehr gerne aus dem Nähkästchen und wirft gerade in den einführenden Kapiteln mit Geschichten aus seiner Disney-Zeit nur so um sich. Dabei vergisst er niemals, wer seine eigenen Lehrer waren, was auch an den reichlichen Literaturhinweisen in den Fußnoten ersichtlich ist. Als inspirierende Einführung mit einem klaren Fingerzeig in Richtung weiterführende Literatur ist "Directing the Story" fast ein Volltreffer.

Format: Taschenbuch
Francis Glebas’ Directing the Story successfully manages to breakdown the processes behind story theory and the importance of story stucture in an endearing, yet mature manner.

The book begins with a brief outlining for the story of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, which features a protagonist in a desperate situation who cleverly avoids execution by telling her would-be executioner a story over the course of 1001 nights. Through the use of cliff-hanger endings and careful story structure, the protagonist is not only able to elude death but also sways the heart of the man who would have her killed. This beginning chapter acts as a good metaphor for today's media industry trends and eases the reader into the thought processes of story writing.

It covers all the basic initial steps, from visualising an idea on paper to outlining important industry standards when telling a story. The end of each chapter features a neat summary of the subjects covered in a final “Points to Remember” and “Reference “ section, providing the reader with an effective indexed glossary and allowing the material to remain easily accessible.

Glebas not only points out the individual aspects surrounding the conventions of the film-industry, but also highlights a new point of view with regards to imaging. What is important? How do you use subtexts to highlight separate components in an image? What does the picture tell the viewer?

Glebas covers these different issues by asking the reader questions that inspire the reader and encourages experimentation by altering techniques and even venturing into different genres in the second half of the book.

Finally it ends with practical and effective pieces of advice to keep in mind when going out to pursue a career.

A top notch book on story 27. Mai 2009
Von Grant Beaudette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Disney story artist Francis Glebas has put together a great book on the process of cinematic storytelling.

Directing the Story touches on composition, pacing and many dramatic techniques designed to creating more emotional connections in stories.

This book goes well with Nancy Bieman's Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts for quality story instruction, but whereas her book also focuses on character design and other aspects of animation, Directing the Story looks solely at storytelling, and not necessarily for animation.

What really sets Glebas' book apart is that it includes a fully boarded out story (an adaptation of 1001 Arabian Nights) that incorporates the methods he's teaching.

There are a couple sticking points with me. One is the writing style. There are plenty of spots throughout the book where I found myself glossing over text because it was so dense. Also even though this book seems to focus on cinematic storytelling in general, animation is where this type of storytelling is most common and people interested in this book are most likely interested in animation. It would have been nice to see a bit more focus on animation and traditional storyboarding to really top things off.

But all things told, Directing the Story has a great look on storytelling. One that other books don't have.

An inspiring and entertaining read 4. Oktober 2010
Von R. A Antounian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There is no substitute than real world experience in storytelling and your subjective observations contain the core value to "good" storytelling. If it comes from deep within you, it's subjective, if it is about human emotional experience and directed to humans, your experience has an objective effect when channeled to others by way of the art of storytelling. That I believe should logically follow to our many convoluted definitions to what story is. I just want to get that out, because I can see how a negative remark about this book can easily stem from one's argumentative definition about story, which may deter critical readers, but hopefully just attract other critical sophist hell bent on their own opinions on everything they deem worth commenting and advising others about in online forums.

This book isn't trying to aim at pretense in the form of authoritarian advice. And it is most useful for those interested in the art of storytelling for animated films, but it's not a shortcoming in any respect. Simply put, Glebas offers his profound and generous advice and "definitions" to story by presenting the inherent problems in visual storytelling, as he goes through countless examples with the reader which in his approach that person becomes more of an observer to the craft of storyboards.

As an animator trying to break in the industry as a story artist, I've read a good amount of the recommended books directly and indirectly on the subject, from the illusion of life and countless "bibles", to books on live action film and Aristotle's Poetics. But in terms of sheer straight forward utility I found this book very helpful. It has the potential to sharpen my focus and skills.

This is one of the few contemporary books out there on animation that is both informative on the subject(industry insider advice)that goes beyond academic education and like many others has aesthetically pleasing drawings to look at. Although there are so many famous figures in the industry today doing their best to inform and inspire the rest of us, they also heavily focus on marketing their own talent and experience as product. This book shares in context with that trend in some ways but more so is a serious read with a conglomeration of visual content created to back its dialogue. I think the price is well worth the scope and depth you'll get out of this one.

Used this book in a storyboarding class 28. April 2010
Von Daniel Blair - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book for its insights into visual storytelling. My favorite tip is that visual communication can be constructed grammatically to form complete visual sentences one picture word at a time. At times Glebas gets a little wordy, hitting on many ideas but not nailing them down as clearly or as confidently as others. While certainly not perfect the book offered me too many ideas to receive any less than 5 stars. The book is full of gems. And it was the least expensive text book of the semester.

It was also a real treat to see Glebas demonstrate storyboarding throughout the text.

This book is amazing. 26. Juni 2011
Von thf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When I first looked at this book, I must say I underestimated what I would learn. I have read many storyboard books this month, and this one is beyond amazing. If you want to learn the functions of storytelling, and excellent storyboarding techniques, this is the book for you.

My favorite section is where he takes you step by step and picture by picture of how to make your pictures speak (pgs 52-62). I make storyboards for films and animations, so when I began to look at the direction given, it made me look at my own boards to see if mine where the best expression for the story that they could be.

I appreciate his honesty in telling you why/how a structure is important and even how it helped him. Francis knows his information and is not afraid to share it so you too can grow. He tells about how he learned from his mistakes and wants you to develop from yours.

This is what I appreciate. Sometimes when people have information, they give you half the story, and half-truth so you can struggle through. Yet Glebas allows you to step in with him and direct the best story you can to pitch. He did an amazing job on this book and I look forward to storyboarding my tail off.

This book is really willing to help you understand the process and functions of directing the story. There is a lot of "useful" information in this book and not just information.
