Rockies Fever: An Animatic

Posted by & filed under Drew's Views, DrewTube, Hardball.

This was the very first attempt I made at an animatic I did while at the Rocky. This one was done in the spring of 2008 and never got published. So you’re seeing it for the very first time. An animatic is the first rough stages of action and sound combined to give an animator the structure to base the finished art on. This one never got completed for several reasons. It runs long (1:55) and the pacing needed to be tightened up. And at the time I was still trying to figure out a way to make the finished art look like my style, because when you draw in Adobe Flash it smooths out the line quality quite a bit. The roughs in the animatic were done in blue pencil on animation paper , scanned and imported into the film. The soundtrack was done as one long sequence, which was the wrong way to do it. So this was really a lesson in what not to do. But I still think it’s funny. So here you go. I hope you like it.
