So I drew some rough storyboards to get the basic idea of how things were going to flow. I've now started on the final storyboards. Hopefully much more readable to those who don't fully know the story. I've done two scenes from the full animatic. Shahbir and I have split the work so we can get it done in time for Wednesday. I've got two more parts to finish, so be sure to check back for any updates.
This is the crash sequence.
Note B3D group members that I've changed the angle of view where the pod crash lands. It is a much wider angle, so you can see the trees and the city in the background. There is no cutting to behind the trees either, so you see the impact with a front row seat.
However I have moved the part where the camera is behind the trees. When the person passing by looks, we then see what he is seeing. Then it cuts back to more curious people. Then back to what they're seeing. This is when the camera curves round a tree to see the pod.
Everything else is much the same.
This is the phone scene. As you can probably guess, the general answers the phone, then slams it back down.
Thats it from A Flock of Pixels... for now.
