Activity 2: Feedback

Photo of a group of people in a room full of storyboards, a whiteboard, and a computer monitor.
Part A: Practicing giving & receiving feedback with someone who has a storyboard to pitch. You can do this with a friend, partner, or in small groups. After you’re done listening, follow the steps below:
  • Start with the positive by giving specific examples of things that you liked, things that are working particularly well.
  • Make it personal. That is, make it clear this is your personal perspective.
  • Be specific with your feedback.
  • Make suggestions for the storyteller to consider, as opposed to dictating what you think should happen. Ask questions

    Sometimes it is hard to write a story when you have multiple stories in your head. Any suggestions?

      Pitching and feedback apply to more than just storyboards. You can use them in almost any team-based environments, and quite a few other situations, such as a pubic speaking class or novel writing. If you want to help someone improve, or just change habits or details of something, this is a good method since they are more likely to listen to you and take your advice to heart.
      I hope this answers your question! :)

      Yes, but maybe give them an outline for how to give feedback. Ask them to watch for things they really liked and things they think need improvement.

      I've found that usually when I tell one of my stories to a friend they usually just say something like: "That was great!" and don't give me any real feedback to help me improve.

      Hope this helps you! :)

    I'm doing a mid-credit scene on storyboard (I know, you're going to ask why this, is because I have my script all written and finished, yesterday, so, I have a lot of scenes written on the script, so I chose this scene, because it's hard for me to, basically, make a storyboard to all of the scenes, but it's okay), that Hulk is introducing Ant-Man the Avengers' facility (I'm not trying to make a MCU rip-off, it's called fan-fiction), and then Thor says that they have a new suit for him, and has advanced modifications, and then after Thor introducing Ant-Man's advanced suit, Thanos comes out of the sky and kidnaps Hulk and then go back. So, Thor calls the Avengers, but no one answers, so Ant-Man and Thor has to get them. Now, I said that it's fan-fiction, and I really thought about it since, 2 or a month ago, and I really love it, but I'm always thinking, how should I put my villains, of the future movies, entertained? The villain of this one is messed up, but not weird. But's, it's kinda a good story.

      It's looking good so far... I personally liked how you're taking the Avengers in a whole new direction! I really think that if you stick to this that you could truly succeed and over-preform. One suggestion though. How would you feel about a copy of each hero hailing from a parallel universe to combat our heroes?
