So I’m working on a collaborative project that is also part of my thesis this semester called The Knight. Pretty wild project. It started off as a 3D animated/stop motion short with 6 characters that was 6 minutes long. Crazy town! We realized that that is ridiculous for a student film and cut it to 3 minutes and 4 characters.
Over the weekend I redid the boards and now the cut is 1 minute 22 seconds son. SWEET! Very glad for that. We still have four principle characters including a *spoiler alert* character that transforms into an even MORE boss character. Happy that I am a board artist.
Hey board artists — keep the animators in mind. Because your super cool sequence is still super cool, but think of your animators, and how they will need to figure out how to animate that crazy awesome shot.
Here are the work-in-progress-boards. AND…the newest cut of the animatic with a scratch track.
