Last year, Jamie S. Rich and I developed a series of blog posts to accompany A Boy & A Girl (Oni Press was planning to release it chapter-by-chapter online before the release of the GN). The posts weren’t used in the end, but I’d like to release this blog post (meant to follow chapter 2) and possibly one other because they discuss staging for comics. Specifically, how to handle a scene where the 180 degree rule and characters’ order of dialogue conflict.
Note: I know a lot of comic artists who feel that the 180 degree rule is more important in film than comics, and don’t let it dictate how they stage their comics. I think it’s a useful guideline and don’t break it unless I can’t avoid doing so.
Deathigner - short film
..In which the children of the gods of Death attend reaper-school.
Look at this ADORABLE short film.
WATCH THIS. This is so fucking cute that I started to cry
god, this is so sweet. And I really loved how they had different death gods too, even more than the 3 we focused on. All the different cultural Deaths
That was the cutest ting EVER
