Page Turn

I decide for my transitions I wanted the pages of the book to turn to reveal the next illustraion. Using the keys I had made I filmed them on flipbook. As it is an animatic the animation won't need to be smooth. I started by filming it on 2s but it was too quick so then i added frames and filmed it on 4s which works much better.

Turning a New Page

I liked the look of the keys that I made out of paper so I decided to use this as the style of the sequence. I then began to see if it would be possible to construct all the shots.

One of the main problems with the colour script and old storyboard was that the shot depicting the page turn transition was not clear. So i drew a lot more pages turning at different points in the action to get something that communicated better. I also made a flat book and decided I liked that. After drawing the keys for the actual animation I decided to make them as well and preferred these to the drawn keys.

First background

I finally finished colouring one of the backgrounds for Alex's film, this will be used for a shot of the character crossing the city scape. I still need to work into the line and give it more of a brush stroke, I can do this when I get the right pen. The background was broken up into the three individual layers the foreground, mid ground and the sky is the background.
