Drawing from film

I’ve been spending several weeks now thinking about how I can use the film footage as a reference for drawing. I started out by watching the footage, frame by frame, and drawing the sequence of poses that the figure goes through on film on the same sheet of paper.  It’s good for getting an overall sense of what a composition could be, but the poses get easily cluttered from all of the overlapping. I’m thinking that now the solution is to continue to draw frame by frame, but to draw each pose on a single sheet of tracing paper.  Next I’ll layer three of the drawings over each other so that I can separate the figures from each other.
