This is a seminar/panel presentation on how backgrounds and layouts can affect storytelling possibilities for animation, comics, and gaming (it is connected to lessons presented in my book “Set the Action!”, a textbook on background design for media artists published by Focal Press). I go through focus of environment within story, the mood desired, layout for best use, authenticity of design, and pretty much treat backgrounds as characters.
