Visual Storytelling

About the Session

Join Alex Karaconji in considering the rough charm and quiet beauty of wordless comics, woodcut novels and ultra-realism.

“There’s something incredibly powerful when a viewer grasps the intended meaning of a visual narrative without the aid of language.” Alex Karaconji

This workshop is suitable for those who want to develop their visual storytelling skills.

Participants will learn how to use different comic conventions - e.g., action-to-action transitions - to tell a dramatically-slowed down narrative. Discover how tone, composition and pacing can be used to mine the endless possibilities of storytelling
