Storyboard to Screen: The Pitfalls

So, our first of regular weekly "Paper & Pixels" videos taking you through all aspects of animation and animated story production.

They will become more polished as we progress, so please except this is a little rough and ready to start!

Storyboard template: https://tinyurl.com/ybcsbaay We take you through some of the issues to look out for when creating your own storyboard and some of the steps we take to the final animated scene. We create animated ebooks but we hope that some of the tips detailed here will apply to many other types of animation.

How to make a Boovie: part 1 overview

Ok, first things first, what's a Boovie?

It's our word for something that's not a book and is not a movie, it's a hybrid of both.  Every page has an animated illustration, a short looping movie that brings rich and colourful images to life (basically a very enhanced ebook -but we are not keen on the word 'ebook').

One of the double page spreads from Galdo's Gift -The Boovie

We've developed various inventive techniques for creating an animating these illustrations and were asked recently about the process and how it could help children learn when producing our first Boovie, Galdo's Gift.

So we decided to make a short video to explain ourselves.  It's one of our first, so please be kind.
