On the 6floor of the New Millennium Building, a learning ecosystem in the form of each production pipeline had been established (Pre-Production Step, Production Step, Post-Production Step, Mobile Step)

HCL Lab- Pre-production step (NM601)

Professor : Hong-Sik Pak / Sunghoon Cho / Thomas Humpal
  - Research Areas : Film and Animation Story development, Scene breakdown, Storyboard, Animatics, Camera working, etc.
  - Student Leader :N/A

    ● Overview : In animation and filmmaking process, pre-production step is essential to step before production begins. This pre-production lab is concerned with creating stories, synopsis, scenario, schedule, budget, location scouting, scene breakdown, shot list, etc. Finally, creating storyboard and animatics to prepare for the next step(shooting and animation production), students need to be creative and think in a variety of ways on creating stories. As a result, with those skills and knowledge, students can prepare for becoming a filmmaker, director, writer and/or a previsualization artist.
    ● Method of operation : Extracurricular program. Students can participate and work on creating stories and animatics after class. Need to talk with Prof. Sunghoon Cho for participation.
