A Rare Opportunity
Not available anywhere else this seminar is designed for directors, writers, production designers, layout & storyboard artists, concept artists, and cinematographers and those aspiring to succeed in those fields. Thousands of artists, writers and producers have attended Bruce's studio lectures. If you are an independent filmmaker or your work appears in feature films, television shows or computer games, don't miss this rare opportunity to see, hear and learn as Bruce powerfully explains visual structure and how you can use it.
The Visual Story is the Bible for Filmmakers
Just as a writer is concerned with story structure or a musician with musical structure, a picture maker must be concerned with visual structure. The key to using visual structure is an understanding of the basic visual components: space, line, shape, color, tone, movement, and rhythm. It's through the control of these visual components that we can stir an audience's emotions, create new and unique visual styles and control the critical relationship between story and visual structure. The principles discussed in Bruce's seminar can be used in live-action or animation for any format including features, television shows, commercials, computer games or Internet sites. His seminar relates all of the visual concepts to practical production and bridges the gap between theory and practice.
