Gosh, I am a procrastinator. After all this time I finally sat down to do the boards and it only took me a day. I've got to work on that. Anyway, here they are! These drawings are a rough idea of the staging and acting of the final commercial. They are read left column first, top to bottom and then right column top to bottom. I am going to try to get an animatic ( a movie of these images cut to the audio track ) posted sometime between now and New Years. Until then, click on the title of this post to download the entire board. Enjoy!
Okee doke. As promised this is the first official post on my BLOG. And to start things off I would assume that if you are reading this blog you are interested in my project. So therefore you might be interested in reading the script. It might make following along here a bit easier. The idea of Adventures In Milk was originally going to be a pitch for an animated series. A talented fellow by the name of Paul Fisher came up with a concept for a hyper active, sugar high induced kid addicted to cereal, named Cereal Boy. I developed it further and pitched it around to no avail. I thought it might make a cool feature length live action film so I ran with it but found that my discipline to write 110 pages left a lot to be desired. After 10 years of kicking around ideas (and avoiding the actual work) I realised that if I wrote it as a short film I might actually make it as well. After I made that decision it took me about a week to write the current draft. Im sure it will change along the way, but I like where it's at now. I purposely wrote the script to include some of my favorite film techniques including animation and stop-motion. Basically, I'm trying to make a calling card, albeit an expensive one, to hopefully make a transition into doing other live action projects. Im none to good at this "computer" stuff so if you are interested, please email me and I will send you a PDF of the script. It's only 24 pages. You could read it on the pot. And, as always, feedback and comments are very much welcome! Enjoy!
