The Doodler Update: Week 3

….Is what Sammy Butler asked herself in Week 1 as did we all. The good news is we were not completely up s*** creek without a paddle. We had a story to go from we just had to refine, adjust and refine it again. Now we are at Week 3 and things are getting even more interesting as we adapt our story while bringing our sketches further into development. Our tutorials with our lecturers Phil & Alan have aided us in creating something truly spectacular. We are enjoying the project this far, each week is a new development to talk about!

Our director Sammy Butler has been involved with the story development of the project. This is her story from a prior year 1 unit back in 2011. We have established that our animatic (animated storyboard) will be the make or break of this short so we are all going to be tipping our hats to accommodate this narrative.

This week in our group tutorials we established key alterations to the third act of our short. We also discussed some of Lead Artist Chrissie Peters character designs before going back to Stitch’s base forms and poses. Week 4 will be about finalising concept art and storyboards while experimenting with 3D planes.
