Here is the storyboard for my 'Secret Garden' idea.
Now working on the animatic to lock-down models, timing and effects.
Warning: storyboard reveals spoilers !




Storyboard for the , "Secret Garden"

* camera static for entire shot [but for shaking]
- with its fuse going , bomb (a) rolls down hill left to right
- bomb (a) with fuse still going slows down before reaching bench
- pause a few seconds ... [the anticipation]
- kboom! bomb (a) explodes [rather thick blobby fluid to feel cartoony]
- bomb case explodes into a rainbow smoke puff -- flinging out 1000 magic seeds
- bench undamaged by magical puff
- seeds eventually fall to grass
- colorful magic flowers start to sprout [in a chain reaction] over the entire hill
- watch flowers grow for a few seconds
- with its fuse going , bomb (b) rolls down hill --but when halfway down-- cut to black; end


thanks,

Ahh, thats a great idea man! I'll be interested to see how your growing flowers turn out. Getting that right "springy" sprouting motion is a wonderful effect when it's done well!

Some research and the animatic. Working on many additional things, like the clouds, birds, fuse, smoke bomb, grass etc, and to save time I slowly turn the animatic files into the final shots.

Secret Garden - Animatic:


This animatic video will update as i add more stuff and near end finalize the v-ray render.

Looks awesome. I like the idea with flowers, and I have had the "o-o!" moment when I saw second big bomb coming. So funny!

The finished models to date -- seed, flower, bird, and cloud models remain and will be finalized soon

Trees / flowers created fast and procedurally with the free ATree3D plug-in.



Thanks,

Very nice indeed. A fun little animation, lots of colours and a nice cartoony feel. I was hoping that the big bomb rolling down the hill would have squashed the flowers a little (wire deformers on curves).

Overall really nice shot. Gratz man!
