9:50 Modeling our 3D Character (Part 2- extruding the face)
Using the geometry last week we’ll begin to pull out our vertices and shape Corey’s face. If you did a good job with your geometry last week, this should be smooth.
CNTRL + ALT + Q = Quad view
Our goal is to make the mask as smooth as possible. This mask could be saved (using Save As) and you could use this mask over and over for other characters!

11:35 Building the Storyboard
I want you to come up with the story PSA (and then the storyboard) of your PSA animation. There are many distracted driving PSAs on the web you can use for inspiration.
Most stories work because they have a basic story arc (which is like a recipe for the events and how they unfold)
- Exposition/Stasis (this is the beginning of the story): This is where you lay the
groundwork for the story. Could be establishing shot, driving in a car, an introduction to
the character and what they are doing
- Rising Action: Hidden danger around the corner, kids playing
- Climax: when the viewer is most engaged, they are watching intently, maybe they
know or don’t know what is going to happen
- Falling Action: Correction is made, fallout from climax
- Resolution: Character moves on, information is passed, warning is displayed, full
Each cell of your storyboard should have visuals of what the camera is telling the viewer: Shot type, audio, descriptive information about what is happening in that cell. Don’t worry about the order of your cells, you can always cut them up and rearrange, add and replace storyboard cells.
Storyboards need to be signed off by me before beginning the blocking / modeling / work on the animation PSA.
Storyboards due Thursday, February 10th.
