This is my pre-visualization. My inspiration is Penelope Pussycat, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and all of the old B-movies that I can get my hands on.

Yes, there will be a giant poop monster. :P
I've also decided to get a lot of inspiration, especially for the narration, from the old trailer to "It Came From Outer Space" (1953), which you can watch here. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErFsW4-FDWw&feature=related)

Here is a general shotlist that I came up with for my short:

This is the storyboard to the trailer that I previsioned. There is more to come. I am working on expanding the story to explain why the giant poop monster comes to life, what that woman is doing in the men's room, and how the poop monster meets its defeat.

Scene 1 - Chem Lab

A burglar breaks into a chemistry lab. He steals a secret formula. The lab guard dog spooks the unwelcome burglar and the burglar jumps through a nearby window.

The posters in the chem lab are actual periodic tables from the 1950s. The right poster is by John D Clark and the left poster is Edgar Longman's mural, restored by Philip Stewart. I added them to get a 1950's chem lab feel. All of the other textures are procedural, so far.

Scene work in progress

Here are some scene updates. Outside of the chemistry lab is an open manhole that the burglar falls into and accidentally breaks the test tube full of dangerous chemicals. The chemicals and sewage mix with the burglar's DNA to create the giant sewage monster.

Character work in progress

The burglar is, for the most part, complete. I might make a few adjustments to him if I have time. Still working on modeling, texturing, and rigging the other characters.

Whew! Okay, I just have a few things to say. All of the works in the final video are my own and all voice actors are signed and credited. The sound is sort of experimental. I originally imagined an orchestral soundtrack, but to make do with the instruments that I have, it turned out to be more like spaghetti western music. This has been a great challenge and learning experience in many ways. I'd like to thank everyone who offered support and encouragement. Questions, compliments and critiques are welcome.

I realized that itís kind of difficult to view the final video on here with a lower internet speed, so I uploaded the trailer and the full feature video to YouTube. Here are the links:
