His approach, which is to ask a lot of seemingly innocent questions, has much the same effect as the good storytelling he is trying to teach us. I can't imagine anyone, in or out of our business, who won't find any number of helpful ideas as they work their way through the filmmaking jungles!! He has a wealth of experience to share.
Francis is also an award-winning independent live action movie maker with almost 40 years' experience. He currently teaches storyboarding at Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Customers who bought this item also bought. No customer reviews. How does Amazon calculate star ratings?

Verified Purchase. Besides sharing my stories with others, I want to be the best storyteller there is; otherwise I wouldn't call myself an animator. But the patterns were the same for each, I would read them for awhile and never finish them. The books did teach me some techniques here and there, but it felt like they were missing something; which I myself couldn't figure out at the time. Then I stumbled upon this masterpiece, within the first couple of chapters this book did something no other could.
Within the first three chapters, I learned about many concepts but the most memorable was gestalt. These concepts were taught so well, that they felt like second nature. They made me so excited that, I wasn't able to finish the book and jumped straight to making an animated short. I can't explain how much inspiration I felt, but from start to finish I produced a 13 minute animation within 7 days.
Like I said before this book provided me with more than just information. I also want to note that I am self taught and haven't taken any school education in terms of animation. If you remember having an awesome teacher that makes learning fun and not a chore; this is the sensation I felt as I turned each page, wondering what I'll learn next.
This book is like a fine dine restaurant, it keeps me coming back for more. At this point, the name Francis Glebas has been forever en-grained into my subconscious. This book didn't teach me how to become a better animator, which is an area I need improvement in; but rather it makes my drawings have meaning no matter how basic the visuals may look.
That is why I enjoy this book and would recommend it to any visual artist. This book gives you the ingredients needed to physically communicate with your inner thoughts, you can forge your own story or recreate old ones. What if the three little pigs were evil and the big bad wolf was the hero? Hansel and Gratel are zombie slayers? Humpty Dumpty faked his death? This book has a teaching style that I enjoy and if anyone can recommend a musical book that has this teaching style please feel free to recommend it.
If not, I really hope Francis Glebas can make a "music book" maybe call it "Directing the Music"; I'd buy it at a heartbeat. I am a science communicator, playwright, and storyteller. My cartooning teacher told me about this book and I will be forever grateful for that suggestion.
This book lays out elements, structure, and dynamics of story in a way that is remarkably clear, compelling, and useful. It helped me come to a clearer understanding of why I do what I do and what else I should be doing in all aspects of my work.
I have purchased several copies and given them as gifts and will probably buy many more. Thank you, Francis Glebas, for leading the way in thinking about and designing stories. Oh, I loved the illustrations.
What a great book to own. He says he loves it. I was hesitant since he's part of a generation that lives on social media and learns from Youtube but given his enthusiasm I think this was a good buy. Who knows, maybe he will continue to pursue this as career or hobby. Either way, it turned out to be a good present and I'm pleased with the quality of book itself.
Directing the Story clarify to me simple questions I had about filmmaking What the directors do? How some one do actually direct and design a film?
The author answer that questions clearly and without technical-complicated language. It is important specially if you are an aspiring filmmaker with no previous training. It will help you having a big picture of the art of visual storytelling, to speak to the audience. After reading this book you will see movies differently. Though, as in any art craft, practice is the key but it is better when you have an idea of the path you have to walk. A masterclass in storyboarding!
I've been animating short films throughout high school, college, and 3 years of professional experience. I am great at creating gags and engaging concepts, but structuring those ideas into a story that makes any sense has always been my greatest weakness. I finally decided to give this book a try. I started reading it for about an hour every morning with breakfast before i went to work. It took me about 5 months to read every word at that pace, which turned out to be perfect because I got to treat it more like a class, supplementing my personal story boarding projects along with the reading.
That being said it does take some focus to get through because it is a lot of information. This book has answered so many of my questions about story. He focuses on providing methods on how to create meaning and entertainment in your stories. Which are the 2 most important aspects of storytelling! With plenty of examples of how to do it correctly and incorrectly. I had so many epiphanies each week reading this, it has completely leveled up my story boarding and writing abilities.
I can't imagine how much better i would be if i got this book years ago. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in telling better stories in any trade. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
