I have produced a storyboard for my final animation. I have written notes on movement/timing etc which aren’t visible on tumblr so here are links to larger files:
My idea is a combination of narrative and aesthetics… The story deals with a snake which is run over. The “spirit” of the snake then metamorphosises into colourful swirls in the sky… this is the aesthetic part. A large portion of the animation is going to be focused on an aurora in the sky. The snake-like shape will gradually expand into a full blown aurora. The finishing scenes will also show landscape, and to make this short animation more… “complete”… I am ending the video with a link to the beginning: the car zooming past.
