Setting up A Scene: Planning

    In this exercise, you will be planning a sequence around the interaction within a scene. You will be provided with the basic layout and most of the models. You will need to develop a story and create a storyboard covering each shot. The first two shots are done for you and will be used to show you how to set up and render a shot. The rest of the shots are up to you.
