This week I thought I'd post videos from various stages of the production. I thought it might be interesting to see how much the short evolved over the process.
Here's the very first reel we put together.
This is the final story animatic that we sent into layout. Temp sfx and music have been added to start to define a mood.
This is the first layout pass. We're really trying to make the storyboards work and we're adding shots the we feel we might need.
This is an IP (in progress) version. There's a mix of rough animation and layout tweaks.
And the final version.
One of the things we weren't able to get to is camera polish. We planned to animate the camera to give them a handheld feel. It would have added so much! Maybe next time.
