LESSON 8: Freeze Frames
Students will explore the physical side of storyboarding – creating physical freeze frames to depict a given story or scenario. After some introductory games, groups of students will split a story into four moments, and use frozen tableaus to represent the story. The teams will present to the group, and the other students must guess what the story or sentence is based on the four tableaus.
