This week our task is to turn our finalised story boards in to an animatic. In order to do this we have decided to cut out the alternate ending for our story to focus on one clearer storyline instead. I’m quite disappointed about this as I liked the idea that depending on the Timekeeper’s choices it would influence the storyline to the world.
Today we decided that it would be easiest to split up work between us and then bring it together to create a more cohesive piece overall, so, Bethnay is going to focus on drawing the cute (but dumb) and intelligent creatures for the world, Claire is going to focus on the Timekeeper, Dervla will work on the backgrounds as she feels this fits her style most and I have taken on the task of adding colour to Bethnay and Claire’s pieces.
Our plans for the piece are a panel to panel transition piece showing each aspect of the story in detail along with music. We plan on coming together on Monday to edit these pieces together and I’m very excited to see how it turns out.
