Animation – giraffe animatic

Animatic – ‘gentle giraffe’ from Tiger Tea on Vimeo.

Okay, so this is a very basic animatic for a more ambitious project than making some ready-made illustrations move across this screen. This is going to be a full animated short (final length to be determined, it’s currently only about 1 min in length but I still need to factor in the speech). Characters will be designed, made to move and (hopefully) speak. It’s a basic concept but I’m not aiming to challenge the animators of legend just yet.

Anyways, this proved so invaluable in getting the timing right. It may even change again once I’ve got voices to the animals but it’s still a great building block. I’ll write a bit more about the storyboarding and character creation process in another post. Until then, enjoy! :D
