Hi Xtronik,
It looks like it's gonna be a great one! I can actually hear its music when I see it.
The drawings are impressing and the broken torch of the Statue of Liberty shows the setting of the movie like no other thing would. That's a good idea!

Feel free to contact me for music for the final project, I am a composer.

Btw, didn't you forget an H before the last S in the name of the project?

First of all: How does it continue?

Looks great, I like the mood, the post-apocalyptic world comes across really well, the reference to Planet of the Apes is nice ;)

What is not clear to me: Why does he start running in the first place leaving his tasty tinned meal behind? A close-up of what he's seeing in the distance should be inserted after no. 13. Here and during his run he's showing a great deal of emotion and, yet, I don't know the reasons.

Looking forward to seeing this progressing.

Marc

PS: Minor complaint: there's an axis-jump between no.19 and no.20

The aocalypse come with a better way after a couple of shots :) (believe me)

Looking forward to seeing this progressing.

These storyboards may be too detailed. How long did you spend on each one? What if the director changes something and wants to see something else? Don't get me wrong I think they are beautifull but they might be too finished to be that usefull. That's just my opinion. : )

First of all... great work!
these are more like conceptual sketches that also serve as storyboards. they do serve 2 purposes especially if you're a small production house and wanna kill 2 birds w/ one stone quickly. I assume you're the director and the artist of these boards right? If so, at least you won't be pissing off the storyboard artist if you're wanting to make lots of changes all the time.

I myself am starting a new short this month, and I find that my storyboards have gotten even more rougher and simpler than the past few shorts I've done. It's as if you're just thinking out loud, and wanting to try quick ideas and explore the infinite possibilities quickly on paper. Pixar's storyboards are notoriously rough and simple.. but right to the point... especially Bob Peterson's. I assume you've done quite a bit of rough passes before committing such time and artistry to these... which are excellent.

Hope to see these come to fruition so we can enjoy and celebrate with you.

I agree with ur points.... and for sure these story boards are has some concept mood from my side.
Of course are also draftly painted ....not that draft as you mean that have to be.......but for me is very easy to make a story board with simple lines. Just for the specific I d like to give and some "atmosphere" too.

Now..... for productive needs.....the most common is to see simple line-drawn story boards ... and so far is good...... but beyond that....there are directors that wanna have except from simple scenes illustrations .....an artistic view of the story board..... it helps them giving them also new ideas. Also helps Directors of Photography etc.

The basic clue I got to mention is this.

Beyond style or speed...the basic need u got to have when u ll drawing a story board is some director-theory knowledge. Its not how good illustrator u are ....or how fast u are. You got to draw a sequence of plans....following basic directing rules, axis, rythm, editing geometries and shadow/light forms between shots etc.

Hope u ll agree with me Sam

Hey. Great Drawings.. Amazing!! I need to ask you a few questions though.

First why is he running? What is hunting him? are you going to show us later? do u wanna keep the suspense and reveal later in the sequence?
Second why u chose that first shot do u have a specific use for it or just for atmoshpere, are u gonna have titles there?
...and third is this going to be just animation or you intend on using actors or shot locations etc.

Thats great work man i hope we see some more. As you probably have noticed iam from Athens too and iam a third year Media Practices student doing my project now. If you need any help (doubt that since its a very good concept) feel free to contact me!! I can help you develop or improve the story, narrative, direction etc. If only we had more info!!

I also looked at your website and the way you have your project structured there. You give much more info about each shot.

what about the final piece? is it going to be a 3D short?
are you keeping the same mood and colours? cause I really like it!

well done.

Actually this story has been written as a movie script few years ago. The main purpose was to be produced as a full comic story for publication. Hopefully will finish it for this reason.

The idea of produce it as a full length movie story came from the first attempts to work on it as a comic. So, I ve made a couple of sequences as a story board for a trailer of this story. This would be very interesting to be produced as a a 3d short trailer.

About the mood and feel of the story board.......yes...is kinda this way

as for the film:
very interesting! You should watch Enki Bilal's film and how he excactly depicts his comics into film.. (if you havent seen them already)

as for the comic:
go for it! great style.
btw, have you found a publisher in athens? me being curious now...is it easy?

Xtronik

I like the artistic feel of Enki Bilal. Is one of my favourite artists.
The transfer of the comic into movie-screen was amazing ! Yes I ve seen Immortal.
The only point I could mention about Immortal is that Enki give us a comic-feel story not only in look&feel but in story-telling too.
Timing seems to be "flat" from the beginning till the end of the movie. With a couple of exceptions on those "air-hunting" shots.


About publishing in Athens? Hmmm ....I guess not.
Perhaps UK, France or US

hey...



totally agree about Immortel but still something that looked damn good.



i would also recommend to watch his previous films that are not cg. This is what I meant...even with film he manages to keep the same effect.Tykho Moon especially is the example I m refering to! Don't miss it. The first time I saw it it was on greek national tv (Et3) and I didnt know it was his or even that he has directed and I recognised it only by the whole style of the film.There's an other one which I'm afraid, I haven't seen yet...I think it's called Bunker Palace Hotel





and concerning the comic scene I asked out of curiosity.. at least we get the Babel Comics Festival every year..is it still on? Havent been around for a while now :sad: busy becoming a 3D geek in London. lol.
anyway let me know what happens with the comic heh!


ta leme.
