View Full Version : Storyboards - Discussion

First a disclaimer MAJOR SPOILER ALERT! The storyboard link below will (eventually) show all of the planned plot points, gags, and elements of this sci-fi comedy. Therefore, if you are not a part of the project team I would highly recommend NOT viewing them. It will ruin the whole thing for you and you may not find the short to be humorous at all when it is finally released. View at your own risk of future dissapointment.

This link goes to the first page of the storyboards (

OK folks, I'm making some progress.

Behind the scenes, here's what's been going on with these things: Not a whole lot or less than I had wanted up until this point. I had started on this intro sequence, but the character development was really flat and I was at a loss for a new idea. Other problems hampering these being finished ... work, work, lack of sleep, work, etc.

Also a few elements of the story are still being developed which made continuing with certain parts of the storyboards difficult. I'll say that the original storyboards that I have for this are really just a rough outline (with pictures) that I did overnight while attending school. Therefore some parts need some additional work or thought to make them polished and ... actually funny.

But you really don't want excuses do you? I hate giving them. :argh:

So, I decided to create a specific thread where you can actually harrass me to continue to work on them and provide helpful C&C on what's good and not so good so far. This should keep me going ... :bounce:

Now ... on with the discussion.

Along with the style of the characters and a goal to obtain a "Chuck Jones" style animation, it looks very promising!
Think I'll hang around in this forum a bit more :)
Good-luck guys!

hahaha, this is excellent, really funny, i laughed at the actual storyboards themselves more than anything. I'd really like to help you write this, probably not the actual plot, as i'm guessing you've already got that all down, but gags inside it i'd like to help you write :D
check my comic for my version of "teh funneh"
