I’m attending an IB (International Baccalaureate) school, and we have CAS next year: Creativity:yes:, Action:no:, Service:spin:
For creativity, we have to spend 50 hours (or more) on a creative project, and I’d love to do this with Blender. I’m thinking of a short film or something like that, maybe around 30 minutes. However, I’ve never attempted any projects of this length before, and so I’m not entirely sure about it.
I was wondering if anyone with experience of projects like this could give me some help?
As in, how long of a film is reasonable to make, how much of a story can you fit in in a certain time without it getting confusing, how complex and how many scenes is reasonable? Here are some points I’m interested in:
How much time can I allot to planning before I have to start “blending”? (I’m thinking 10-20 hours, preferably towards 10)
How long of a movie is reasonable and with how many scenes, shots, etc. ? (30 minutes? Maybe less, no more.)
What kind of story can I fit into a short movie?
Any tips on scaling the story to fit certain times?
I have more questions that I can’t think of right now and I’m sure I’ll think of more, but these are all for now.
Any tips in general on short films, using blender for storytelling, planning, storyboards, anything at all will be greatly appreciated.
