Anyways where were we….
We’ve been given a audio sound clip of a true story about a rescuer saving some fisherman’s. It’s our job to create a short animation film based from the audio sound clip given to us. From our crazy brainstorming sessions, we had a load of ideas from three joined-beard fisherman to this crazy battle with the sea. We decided to create a pirate battle against the fisherman but with a twist and a pinch of being sarcastic.
This is the first animatic, which was created by Ben Wardle
From the feedback we got from our animatic, I felt that we were being serious and funny in two different approaches, which didn’t work. As a group, we decided to go back to the drawing board and look at what approach did we wanted to take this film down. During that session we came across a short film by some students at The Animation Workshop, called The Backwater Gospel.
The Backwater Gospel is a great short film that captured our imagination from the style to the rigid lines of the characters. It had everything we wanted to be dark. This was our inspiration. If you haven’t seen this amazing short film, you can by clicking here.
We change our animatic from our feedback and inspiration into a new animatic, yet again this was put together by Ben.
