Project 4 - Storyboard and Animatic

Storyboards Due Thursday, February 16.
Animatic Due Tuesday, February 21.

Create a storyboard and animatic for your final project.

A storyboard is a series of drawings representing the shots and key storytelling frames of an animation. Traditionally, story boards are drawn with each drawing on its own sheet of paper. Then, each drawing is pinned up on a board so that the entire film can be seen at once and drawings can be moved around or taken in and out of the sequence.

An animatic is a video of the storyboards cut for shot length and including a soundtrack.

Here's Eric Goldberg showing how a storyboard pitch is done! Note, how as this video is shot, it basically becomes a rough draft of an animatic.

Here's an animatic for the Gorillaz' Clint Eastwood. Note how they are incorporating limited animation into the animatic. Also note the animation design - we can see what parts of the character will move and which will remain static.
