Animatic Update for group.

Latest Animatic Further Changes.

Animatic Short from Samuel McGuire on Vimeo.

After the more final version of the animatic we made the last few changes and now were finally ready to make this movie. :)

All of us had been struggling up until this point. The animatic was getting chopped and changed. Everyone seemed slightly nervous about the film. I decided that I wanted to collaborate with Sam, so we both met up at my house and we worked on the animatic for two days solid. It was an extremely positive experience, and having someone else as an second opinion helped a great deal. I drew out all the frames while Sam drew out all the backgrounds, we decided what worked and what didn't. 

From this point on, the whole film changed and we went from strength to strength the team became one working unit, and I think this helped as the majority of us were in ever day five times a week.

Parts to change.

  • title scene needs to appear just as the mountains fade. they have to be gone. 
  • When the marmot sneaks behind make him fade in and out with dust cloud as if he is darting from right to left.
  • when the man looks round when it snaps back to the fire make his head, move. 
  • before he looks round make the marmot a lot closer it will make more sense.

  • when he steals the chicken it could be faster. like a flash of speed. 
  • when the marmot runs over the mountain make its faster like the tex aver reference.
  • when the man runs the speed is much more like the tex avery one.
  • the marmot trips over the rock is fine, when the man trips it needs to hold for a second more.
  • after the tip a nice angled shot could show the slope in the landscape to clearly indicate to the audience that the characters are heading down hill. show of the landscape here.
  • Zig zag shot doesn't work. Change it or maybe just delete it. yes if we delete this shot it will read more clearly...
  • when their falling in mid air slow it down so the audience can see whats happening.
  • When the climb out of the hole, I need to redraw the part after they get out of the hole, they get out and then they stumble then shoot of..
  • The almost end shot the classic Tex avery style when they run of into the distance meeting the giant mountain, should change. As we have already used a similar shot to this. since it is the last scene I think the camera should track them from the air as if trying to catch up to them, shooting through the air until the camera begins to slow and they continue to run into the distance. The camera should then cut to a seriously low angle shot which shows you the shire height of this mountain, the character could run past the camera so their feet are very large and enter from the left, Ill explain on paper Sam. 
  • Then when the time lapse kicks in it will make much more sense. 
  • End scene only needs minor changes. 
  • the man needs to snatch the chicken spin around, and then hold it up with a big smile, camera pans out sharply once twice you hear a squark you see a perspective shot of the birds eye and beak it flys down the man is about to bite and its snatches it.
  • Characters are looking depressed, man turns smiles the end.
  • Cut to final scene.
