Visual Storytelling: The Art and Technique
Visual Storytelling: The Art and Technique (Watson-Guptill) Cross-pollination of film, animation, games and comic books. Visual media artists-comic book artists, film and video storyboarders and animators, and creators of interactive games-must express purely with pictures everything that the writer can’t communicate in words.
This book belongs in the library of anyone who is or would like to be a storyteller whether it be comics, animation, film or any multimedia field. This is one of those rare books that doesn’t get published enough. The fact that it covers more than one medium makes this an invaluable reference title. Besides, how often do you find a book that tells you how Steranko does it? –Antolino Mendoza
I can not find a better guide that spans so many mediums. This is an excellent read as well as resource. Thank you Mr. Caputo on another wonderful book. — Amazon
