SAG 105L4 LECTURE 27 SCENE PLANNING
Plan
If you don’t plan, you plan to fail.
The job of a scene planner is to:
o Work from a storyboard
o Compile all of the elements of a shot into a composition that is not only
visually appealing, but also helps the story
o It will also need to give the animator space to perform the action
Field chart
Also called a graticule.
It is used to plot camera moves.
It gives the scene planner a way to measure the size of the camera’s view.
Props
Planning a scene in 3D is similar to 2D.
All items must be placed into position ready for animation.
Any missing props need to be made now.
o If they are not, the animation will be put on hold.
Structure
The basic story and plot structure are made in the storyboarding stage.
The main function of scene planning is to:
o Put detail into the shots
o Make sure there is continuity from shot to shot
o Plan camera moves
o Ensure length and action of each shot is clear
o Create a library of backgrounds and assets that can be used and reused
throughout the production
Getting started
Before planning a shot, make sure you are aware of the story as a whole and
know what stage of it you are at.
Ask yourself these questions:
o How will this scene move the story in the direction it needs to go?
o What are the characters motivations?
