I was unable to take good pictures from the TV but here is an example of some of the storyboards from the internet,
I was able to get some pictures of the primary research That I had gathered by playing the dvd on my laptop and taking screenshots, they were much better quality than taking pictures from the TV.
Responding to primary research
After I had looked at the animated storyboard from the film nausicca of the valley of the wind, i put my screenshots together and i made notes on it to help with the development of my own animatic, and storyboard.
Things that inspired me from the reserach
- instead of actual movement lines were drawn on the storyboard to give the effect of movement.
- the drawings just contained enough detail to show what was going on.
- storyboard contained several veiwpoints, not just from a front angle.
- images only changed when the veiwpoint changed
What inspired me most about watching the film in storyboard after I had seen the actual film was that the story board only changed when the viewpoint did. This made me think about doing the same for my storyboard and animatic so i could save time and spend more time on designing and make the characters and scenery.
I thought if one picture per viewpoint is enough to tell the story for professionals it was good enough for me.
Here are my storyboard pictures. I found I was able to use some of the pixtures twice as the shot and characters position was the same, this saved even more time.
You can see how I did this on my animatic.
here is my animatic, with one image per viewpoint.
