Here are my thumbnails for this week’s assignment. I did some super rough thumbs on the pages of the script itself, then fleshed them out in Storyboard Pro. They’re a lot neater than how I normally do thumbs (more like a rough of the actual boards).
I’ve also attached the script with my notes & thumbs, as well as the thumbs themselves.

There are some really hot ideas here, but the execution needs more clarity.
first off, draw your camera move in keyframe type panels. This way you can show clearly what is happening in every beat during the camera move and it does not interrupt the flow of the the thumbnails
Secondly, lose the color and just draw with black and white. the arrows are fine to describe the action, but dont get distracted by painting in shadows and stuff yet.
You have some fabulous ideas for this scene. i love the use of shadows and camera movement. Keep in mind for the finish pass, you will need to draw each keyframe pose out so it will play clearly in an animatic. I am not sure if I see enough composition information in your thumbs to guide you to a clear and strong finish pass.October 4, 2014 at 5:58 PM #7389
Yeah, I’ll draw them in individual panels for the finished boards. I wanted to work quickly in the thumbs and had a lot of camera moves, so I kept with the arrows for now. I’ll have to get used to doing individual panels, though.
What do you mean that there’s not enough composition information? Do you mean you’re not sure how it’ll look with the camera moves? Or do you mean in general?October 7, 2014 at 5:20 AM #7395
Let me clarify my previous comments. In the thumbs, you should be able to tell if the shots cut well together back and forth based on the shapes and movements of you characters. I have a hard time reading your shots. The camera moves are distracting, and also the crossed out panels( just delete those). I have seen way worse, so its not that things dont make sense, but the real test is if the panels make sense enough to you to be able to flesh them out with tighter poses and nice solid storytelling.
Keep moving forward and lets see what you come up with this week.October 7, 2014 at 10:07 PM #7401
Ah, ok. I see what you mean. Thanks, Sergio. Hopefully it will be clearer once I break everything up.
