Re-Visioning

Students will re-vision their own chapter/scene of a graphic novel (book version or film version) related to our discussions on visual rhetoric. This could be from Game of Thrones, or you may want to choose your own focus. The purpose for the re-vision is to deliver a different visual meaning/message. You are not telling a different story. The story will be the same, but you will deliver different meanings/messages through the different visual presentation that you produce.

  • Minimum 10 cels
  • Your option as to which comics app/procedure you use to make it.
  • Unless you use original images you create yourself, all images (even reworked images) must be credited using APA documentation.
  • Be sure to save final version as pdf.
  • Must be based on visual analysis elements we study in the course
