The 5 story board revisers met Friday night and stayed up late fixing and revising our story, Some major changes were made as we were all upset by the way that the lieca reel turned out. This is no one persons fault of course. We believe that through the semester we were pushed to hard into creating a short film which contained the same amount of content as a full length feature. We did that and it made our film feel rushed and cheesy.
We started breaking down what needed to be removed and we realized that we needed to get rid of some major scenes. The beginning for instance.
Upon realizing this we decided it wise to not limit ourselves to just the outline of our original story.
We roughed out a new story and didn't limit ourselves to 9 panels each or other stupid limitations that were imposed on us in the semester. We finished very rough boards and did a lieca test. It turned out great! Funnier, shorter and much more fun to watch that our old film.
YOU WILL BE GIVEN BOARDS TOMORROW IN THE MEETING, SO WE CAN SEE AS A GROUP HOW THE NEW STORY FLOWS AND SO NO ONE MAKES MISTAKES.
Remember to draw the characters on model, if the rough boards you receive are slightly off model that dosn't mean they are right, don't just trace over them.
Ill try to post the lieca on the blog as well so can all see the new simple spin on our old story.
