In 1990 I was invited to teach a seminar at the American Film Institute on storyboarding. I created a weekend workshop based on my experiences of working with first-time directors. These men and women often came to directing through writing and were much less comfortable communicating about the visual aspects of the medium than they were about the narrative. I set out to make visual communication accessible to those filmmakers who felt they had no ‘talent’ for it.From the beginning, the workshop achieved a popularity neither I nor AFI had anticipated. I added private workshops held each month at a local hotel and was eventually asked to join the film faculty at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. There I have been able to work with student filmmakers and develop a curriculum that encompasses many forms of pre-visualization for film including color theory, composition, storyboarding and narrative structure as it applies to constructing the frame.

  1. :

    From Word to Image is one of the most invaluable film guides I’ve ever read — better than a year of film school. The visualization process of moviemaking is described with startling clarity and intelligence. Marcie Begleiter is the go-to teacher for learning the concepts and techniques behind creating a visual script.

  2. :

    Begleiter has given the subject its own place in the sun through this groundbreaking practical guide and historic companion.

  3. :

    Marcie Begleiter is the person to explain, to give perspective, and to examine the art and craft of storyboarding. FromWord to Image continues her teaching with examples, color photos, and very practical filmmaking information. I have experienced firsthand the impact her work has had on filmmakers. Her contribution to AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women has influenced award-winning directors who have gone on to direct features (College), television (Mad Men), and shorts (Mother).
