2008, my year at the masterclass in Linz, I decided to create a storyboard. I love the book ‘Die Mitte der Welt’ from Andreas Steinhöfel. It influenced me in many different ways. Therefore I decided to visualize a little part out of it. The chapter is called “Die Schlacht am Großen Auge” (The Battle at the Big Eye).
Dianne and Phil are twin siblings. They had a troubled childhood with an absent father and a foreign mother who is badly known all over the place. She constantly changes her relationships with many men. Furthermore, Phil is gay. This is why they were the odd ones of the small village, where Dianne and Phil grew up.
One day the children had a bad fight at a brook far away from the grown ups. This action scene caught my attention to turn into a storyboard.
This were my first steps of making a storyboard – trying to tell the story in a few shots.
