Storyboarding: A Co-Lab Artist Residency Workshop

Taught by Saleem Reshamwala

About the Workshop

During this workshop, visiting artist Saleem Reshamwala will discuss his process for creating storyboards for films. We’ll also talk about the plan for our “Puppets Invade the Co-Lab” film and workshop some of the ideas we have for the week’s big project. Immediately following this will be an open workshop time to design and fabricate some of the set pieces for the film, based on the storyboarding concepts developed. This event is part of a residency that will culminate in a collaborative film shot over the course of the week featuring Duke community-made puppets.
