Cinzia Angelini, one of the masters at AMS 2020 Digital Edition, with her storytelling skills and wonderful storyboard arts, made the session fun-filled, on the third day of the summit. Angelini has worked as storyboard artist and animator on many renowned films including Despicable Me and Abominable (storyboard artist).
The session was filled with some storyboard showcasing of the her projects in the initial stage. Well narrated story goes a long way, is what one can definitely sense from her storytelling style.
Angelini has worked with profound studios across the globe, with major names like Walt Disney, DreamWorks Animation, Sony Imageworks, Warner Brothers, Illumination and many others. She explained how the work process in each studio is different yet very much similar in nature.
She, in a very simplified way told the audience, how to start to become a good storyboard artist, what are the basic storyboard rules and how to apply those. Angelini’s sequence pitching of sequences from Despicable Me and Abominable, made me wonder of the many joys animation brings and how, voice or sound plays an important role in the entire animated feature, to give the desired output.
Angelini’s animation credits include Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters, Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon, Bolt, Meet the Robinsons, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, and The Prince of Egypt.
Angelini is working on her own animated short, Mila, a story about a girl in the war era. The story and the character is an inspiration from her mother. Hoping for a release in 2021, Mila will definitely win hearts with an amazing storyline and a detailed CGI magic.
