What follows are my takeaways from chapter 4 of Liz Blazer’s “Animated Storytelling” and chapter 4 of Jon Krasner’s “Motion Graphic Design.”
In Chapter 4 of Blazer’s Animated Storytelling, she introduces the process of planning out the color choices for a given project. This reading enhanced much of what I had learned from the previous chapters of Blazer’s book. For example, Blazer illustrates the importance of choosing colors that complement the theme of your piece.
The chapter then explains the importance of experimenting by implementing color into your storyboards. In short, this chapter beautifully illustrates how color can be implemented in order to supplement the story of your project. In the future, I will experiment with color in my storyboards in order to find those choices which best serve the theme and story of my projects.
Overall, these readings offered a great of information, and Blazer’s details on use of color will definitely affect how I approach planning my future projects.
