Updated Animatic

video

EDIT: The voice in the beginning is out of syyyync. Dear god, that is so annoying. I haven't the heart to check the rest of it. BAH. Well, I'm out all weekend, so I'll fix it on Monday. For now, just use your imagination. :)

Updated animatic! Haha, Lucien has one line now instead of two, purely because of the way that it fits into the music. But I like it much better this way. Hum, hum, what else? I slowed down the beginning, which is nice, you hear more of Viola's song. I cut into her triumphant jumping, still need to work on that, throw in some close ups and stuff. And I definately still need to work on the Viola/Lucien dance, it needs to be shorter, with close ups in there to show the gradual change from charmy to controlling jerk. That way it will make more sense when she kicks him in the face.

Originally, I boarded this so that after her triumphant jumps, you see her sit down and start her music again. I like it better now, the boring movement is cut out, leaving with a nice empowered close up of her face and then having the lovely image of her playing her music on the rooftops. Woo!

So, to do:

  • Still backgrounds. I am so lame.
  • Shot list and the order that I plan to animate in.
  • Dance fiddling.
  • Picking out some basic sounds to use.

And I'm pretty sure that's all I need to do before I get into production. Awesome!

Inspiration and Voices

I recorded my actors yesterday, very exciting. So expect a refreshed animatic some time before next Wednesday.

And here are some inspiring pictures from a book, 'Paris, in the Age of Impressionism; Masterworks from the Musee D'Orsay.'






Yeah, just a quick post today, nothing terribly exciting. (Well, recording was exciting, but I'm not posting the voices here yet.)
