Desk Shot 349
On the right is the script (by B. Clay Moore), where I do little breakdowns of each shot next to the panel description. Sometimes one shot gets it, sometimes I do 3-4 variations. Then I pick the ones that serve the story and pacing best and make a final layout in the custom made layout book on the left.
I was doing all this digitally for this book (Bombhead) but I've gone back to doing it on paper. I felt like I was losing something by doing it digitally, which is stupid, but I tend to go with my gut on these things, so I switched back.
