I got into honours! Yay! That means that I can dedicate LOADS of time to this animation. :D How exciting! I am thrilled.
I was thinking of the characters jumping up out of the apartment and dancing on the rooftops when the musicians come in. The apartment is just too small and I would love a broader variety of locations.

Some really, really rough concept pieces. Just having a look at poses and the character design of Viola.
I want her hair to blow about everywhere as though she was underwater. So I went on youtube to have a look at a few clips from Disney's the Little Mermaid and Pocahontas for reference.

I've been looking on Youtube for more ballet clips and I've found some really great stuff. Ballerinas are so damn muscular and just incredible!
I've always loved this piece and it's useful for Viola because it has the dynamic of the three dancers in there.
This is useful because there are a lot of dance moves that are not part of an actual dance. So it's sort of like a mini index of moves.
This is quite nice, it's all slowed down so I can see more clearly what goes where when people jump and twirl, etc.
Not the kind of dancing I'm after, but pretty cool, especially seeing as they're missing limbs!
More lovely dancing.
And that's probably enough for tonight. :)

So this first post (and the next batch) is some concept/treatment art as well as inspiring artworks and reference photos/videos.
And here is a really great ballet youtube video:
Ballet and dance will be a big part of this film. I am also trying to figure out where I can put dialogue in this film, because lip synch is my greatest strength. So of course I picked an idea that doesn't need any dialogue...and would probably work better without it...Hahaha. Go me. If I do put dialogue in though, will it be in english or french? Who knows.
