Words and concepts from Creative Arts Today (pages 131-2)
Visual storytelling – ideas of time and place are presented through multiple or single frame images
Comics, animations and moving image use frame by frame sequence of images.
Literary devices such as dialogue, descriptions, third person narration or written sounds are combined with the frames.
Other visual devices used are speech bubbles and the visualisation of sounds, movements and actions.
A visual story can be told also by single frame images in which visual information is structured in order to be read in a particular order.
Importance of use of composition, framing and structuring.
Visual representation makes use of visual conventions, for instance rules of perspective as against Cubist representation of objects.
