Here’s the latest animatic, this time with ALL 114 shots!
As I watched it for the first time I jotted down notes for what to change in each shot. There’s some issue with animation, lighting, composition, or timing in nearly every shot…but that’s okay! That’s what a rough draft is all about.
I think that animation is sort of like painting a fence. You do it in layers and coats. Most student projects are lucky to get to do 1 or 2 full layers of paint. Animations from major studios have so many layers that it’d take a giant drill, a scientist, an engineer, and a black man to sacrifice himself in case anything goes wrong in order to dig through them all.
Here’s the first layer. Let me know what you think!
