SMART AND SEXY

We’re technology geeks, but when it comes to unleashing creativity, nothing beats the kinaesthetic experience of pen on paper. We’re passionate about visual storytelling and searched for a beautiful, tactile, practical notebook for sketching out storyboards when inspiration strikes… but nothing hit the spot. That’s why we’re plotting the launch of the world’s most spanking gorgeous notebook for visual artists, THE STORYBOARD, coming soon on Kickstarter.

Got a friend who’s a filmmaker or visual artist? Make sure they don’t miss the launch of THE STORYBOARD notebook,

RAISE THE BAR

DREAM IT. STORYBOARD IT. MAKE IT REAL.

We’re inspired by the masters, from Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg, to Ridley Scott and Martin Scorsese. We share their belief that every frame should be a painting.

Our aim is to bring you the best storyboarding notebook in the world.

Here are just some of the design features:

  • Deliciously tactile flexible cover in silky smooth black bonded leather.

  • Sleek black foil letters give a shiny yet subtle finish that oozes style.

  • Endleaves in vibrant orange, said to be the colour of adventure and action, giving courage and creative flair.

  • Elegant round cut corners, with pages cut flush with the cover, each one edged in orange.

VISUALISE IT

NEVER LOSE ANOTHER BIG IDEA AGAIN.

Maybe, for you, it’s in the shower. Or when you’re out for a run. We never know when creative inspiration will strike, but one thing is for sure: ideas that aren’t captured are often lost forever. That’s why we created THE STORYBOARD notebook with a dual page layout:

  • Left hand pages are faintly ruled, giving you space for making notes when inspiration strikes, whether ideas for a scene, a character, a shot, or sound.

  • Right hand pages are in landscape format with storyboarding panes, space for referencing scene and shot number and faint rules for descriptive notes. Fick through your storyboard to see how it flows without getting distracted by your notes.

  • Pages are made of premium quality heavy (120gsm) paper, suitable for sketching in ink without bleeding through. .

BE INSPIRED

BE PASSIONATE. BE CURIOUS. NEVER STOP LEARNING.

  • THE STORYBOARD notebook contains a brief glossary at the back, with important terms to help you create descriptive storyboards.

  • Towards the back you’ll also find some example storyboards, all sketched out, suggesting ways to indicate camera movement and action.

Meaning

WHAT’S IN A Name?

Stories have magical change-making powers. Buried in their depths lies a hidden structure, life’s secret code. Patterns of tension and release, light and shade, connection and conflict. The greater the obstacles in our hero’s way, the more heroic they become. Whether you’re a writer, filmmaker, artist, or entrepreneur, you are both hero a storyteller. We are here to support you on your quest.

Fable

Fables are stories, passed down through generations, that teach people how to live through a moral or truth.

Muse

A muse is a source of creative inspiration. In Greek and Roman mythology, the muses were goddesses that presided over the arts and sciences.

What we believe

OUR 5 PRINCIPLES

fable&muse is headquartered in London and founded in the remote hills of central Portugal, by Shetlanders Jane and Robert Young. We’re on a quest to unleash the power of creative imagination, by creating practical, inspiring and educational tools that enable makers and doers to reach their potential.

SPANKING GORGEOUSNESS

Beautiful things, whether real or imagined, trigger an emotional response. Beauty resonates, captivates and moves us. So make quality stuff that’s spanking gorgeous.

PEACE, LOVE & HARMONY

Creativity comes to life through collaboration. When we share and create together, nothing is impossible. So embody a spirit of generosity, honesty and dedication to helping others.

FEARLESS CREATIVITY

Inspiration, from the latin ‘inspirare’, means ‘to breathe into’. Genius strikes when we get over our fears, step out of the way and let inspiration flow. So channel magic powers from a fearless creative state.

EXTREME AUTHENTICITY

We only discover our true potential when we have the freedom to think differently and rock our uniqueness, without BS and pretention. The more we express who we really are, the better we do.

ACTION & KAHUNAS

Knowledge without action + ideas without execution = sweet nothing. So to create change don’t just talk, make and do, with relentless persistence and balls of steel.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
