@Phil/Alan WIP Stage 1: Draft Animatic Voice Over // Unedited

Stage: 1 Draft Animatic Voice Over // Unedited

First initial draft of my animatic including the unedited (read straight through) version of my voice over. I have included some shots that I can see coming to life in my animation. It is a very basic draft as I am unsure in what shots would be best in a wide 3D space and how to represent them right now, another brain freeze if I'm honest. @Phil/Alan I guess we could have discussions about what shots/perspectives and transitions could work.


  • First scene will be lightning/thunder. Voice starts at 14 sec.
  • The lighting on Silver is what I plan to use throughout the scenes.
  • The drawing of The Beast is to represent him moving past the camera revealing the next shot as he passes through. I plan on implicating this effect in the later version(s).
  • Voice Over is unedited and is not 100% final - It cuts off before the whole voice over is read as I am still working with the voice actor on line delivery.

@Alan Major Project: Animation Style Ideas

Animation Style Ideas

I have found some images that compel to me the most. I have looked at the films you suggested, but I also included references of my own knowledge, such as the film 'John Wick' and the game 'The Wolf Among Us'. The other images are from my gallery of reference material I have gathered over the years on the course.

The noir film stills and the red and blue images are similar to what we discussed. But I am also keen on the second image down from the top right. The green, black and white is very appealing, so I feel like these images are where I want to start.

Only God Forgives
John Wick
Blade Runner
The Wolf Among Us
Various Concept Art

EDIT: Added some horror/gothic films.

Crimson peak
Corpse Bride
The Fog
