Below are the storyboard pages I made for the Olympics animation-
At the moment the images are just photos but I will include scanned versions shortly.
I first drew scenes I knew I wanted to include on post-it notes and moved them around for timing and plot pacing. I filled in the gaps with other ideas, but because I’d used post-it notes I was able to very quickly see and change my ideas. I ended up with about four different versions- some of the examples having a bigger Spanish influence and some only having Elizabeth as the character. I decided however that I needed to focus on the fact it was an Olympic themed brief so I ended up with the board below.
I drew these on TVPaint and made it my line test, with extra frames on the lift added-
I included backgrounds in my storyboard but not in the line test.
After drawing this and the neat version I realised I didn’t like the final frame and created a few different versions of it-
I eventually settled on a low angle shot with flags waving which can be seen at the end of this version-
But even in this version I can tell I need to include more shots to give the story a smoother flow.
Also as part of my developmental work I did a few pages of squash and stretch with a lift motion-
