Scary: Story Update

Scary has gone through quite a few story iterations, especially where the ending is concerned. Here are a few of the story and layout animatics. In previous versions of the story the mom either noticed the boy buy ignored him, or never noticed him at all. The boy eventually got so frustrated that it left him open to a retaliatory scare from his mom.

TheĀ version we’ve settled on lately, though, eliminates many of the individual gags and has the boy succeed in scaring his mother, only to have his growling stomach interrupt his terrible roar. His mother prepares dinner for him, playing along with his monstrous antics until finally putting him to bed. This version, though lacking the original ‘Buster Keaton-esque’ comedy, feels like a better story about the relationship of a mother to her son!

Which version do you like more?
