A really nice column by my friend Regina McCombs: Meaning in Motion: Ken Burns and His “Effect.”

Burns believes the photograph is still the core of visual storytelling, that “the still image is still the essential building block, the DNA, at least photographically speaking, of visual creation.” From that foundation emerge three concepts to consider when working with movement and photography.

Yes, she interviewed Ken Burns about the Ken Burns Effect!

yeah, i have to agree wholeheartedly. single/still images are the core of storyboarding and shot planning.

the single image helps conceptualize a scene, frame and compose the shot. anyone who wants to get into film or video should have a still camera with them all the time.
