Never before have the means of cinematic storytelling been put into the hands of so many. Thousands of new storytellers are taking advantage of media that did not exist a decade ago. With entry-level HD recorders, even beginning students have access to low-cost, professional-quality image making. However, there's no digital replacement for the skills needed to visualize a film and plan its execution. From Word to Image will help you master the steps of translating a written story into a sequence of moving images. This is a guidebook to creating your visual script.
