Hi everyone!
I'm starting a short trailer. My story follows an island of deserted aliens that are looking for a host planet, after their own home was flushed away by the "black wind".
It's the year 3000 and a little boy comes out to play. It's sunny outside and all of a sudden a grey cloud comes over his head and a small raindrop falls on his nose. He is staring at that raindrop as it changes its form and becomes a funny bulb with 2 eyes singing desperately. The boy doesn't undestand anything and the bulb sings more until the boy starts "seeing" his song. The song shows images about the journey of his own kind island and how their planet was destroyed. Finally after the boy saw the struggle of the aliens to find a new home, he agreed they could plunge and live in his lake behind his house. The aliens transformed the island into a big cloud that poured water(the aliens) over the lake. Only the boy could see the particles moving in a shape-fantasy joy of the extra-terestrial kind.
I want to keep the story in the limit of max 2 min., and the trailer within 30 sec.
I have a good view of my story and now i'm just testing my conception to get to my head images.

Good luck to everyone!

Ok, so i changed my story a bit. This is some part of my storyboard, in brief.
So my story: "There is this girl sitting in a room completing a puzzle. Before she puts the last piece down she looks at an alien bulb that found her floating in space. The bulb takes the puzzle and creates a miniature of what is drawn. The girl shows the bulb a planet and then the bulb goes outside, where other alien bulbs where waiting for an answer and then they start making this big ball that looks like Earth and then invites the little girl to get in her new home. After she openes the door to the ball, she finds herself an the very home that was destroyed. The End!

Well, i have a better idea. I hope i won't go on with ideas until the end of the Challenge :))
Anyway, i considered the UpliftWar Trailer a good start for what i am about to do, after giving some thoughts.
So i uploaded some referrence images i sketched to help me build my characters. That is 2 gorillas, one human, 2-3 aliens. That's it for now! Moving to WIP!
