Back to the Drawing Board

An excerpt from the storyboard movie

So today I need to sit back in front of the drawing board and further flesh out our storyboards. 

I spent time yesterday making a rough animation from our storyboards so far.  It's not easy to be able to understand how the pace of the mini movies will work within the book.  We needed a movie that uses the storyboard images and some music to try and understand how much time we will need for narration within each movie on each page.

A mock up for the final scenes

There is a glaring hole preventing the completion of this guide movie though -the ending.  We know what the ending is, but for one reason or another we haven't put it into the storyboard yet.  So that's today's task.

Eleanor worked more on populating our forest with more trees based on our storyboard and has made an excellent little set for our characters final scenes in the castle courtyard.
