My name is Daniel Gonzales and Im an animator at The Walt Disney Animation Studios What Is This A traditional art education rarely takes you through the ABCs of visual story telling. My goal was simple when I uploaded this workshop almost half a year ago: To try to make this the most accessible experience I could. There are over 15+ personal videos (10 min. each) that are available and easy to follow. I emulate a tone that reflects how a critique would sound behind the scenes at a professional studio. I will teach you how to tell a story and bring it to life with uniqueness and specificity and teach you everything I learned from a professional perspective. Whether its the 1930s or 2013 Artists at Disney never stop learning or teaching What You Will Learn Storytelling is one of the oldest art forms that humans have. Stories have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment education and cultural preservation. In this class you will be exposed to the essential idea of a narrative story structure with beginnings middles and endings. There are many tools to execute a successful story both verbally and visually and these workshops will teach you how. There are hardly revolutionary new ways to learn age old art forms so I will not promise that what I will promise is to give a new perspective on how to understand common fundamental elements and use that foundation as a spring board to grasp advance concepts of story telling. How to execute a story with all its parts working in unison.
