Hey Richard,

My idea

Hey Everyone, So I think I am going to have a fast paced, action type of animation. I really like the parkour style, a really good example is,
also Mirror's edge is a good example.

I was thinking I would have my main character stealing something important from the government. Such as incriminating information, a Virus, a DNA code, etc... Basically something that could bring down the government, or stop the government from doing something bad. This would lead into a chase sort of scene of him running away from them. Not quite sure of the outcome yet but will keep thinking about it.

Let me know If you have any cool ideas to work off.

Thanks, I look forward to seeing all your entries.

Hey Richard,

Maybe check out the Bourne movies. I don't remember which one, but theres a great chase sequence in it which would be great to reference both for the animation and camera work when following someone doing crazy stunts. Just my two cents. Good luck.

Storyboards / pre-visualization: Action Sequence idea

Idea for the action sequence, I'm going to have him break down the door and break past the guards.

Storyboards / pre-visualization: Action Sequence idea

Just a stairway where the chase will continue.

Storyboards / pre-visualization: Storyboard

1) Opening shot, walking up to Bank doors.
2)Runs Past Security guards at front
3)Goes into circuit room and locks door behing him so security cannot open it.
4)Starts pulling a bunch of wires apart destroying everything. Looks at Camera in the room and it powers down
5)Busts out of room with security getting knocked down.
6)continues the chase upstairs
7)runs along the rooftop
8) gets to edge of builing and as there are tons of security after him he phones someone.
9)Cut to one of the security guards on phone at front robbing bank, makes off with all the money through the front door
10)Runner jumps off building to the next one. Security can`t make the jump

Wow...that's looking very impressive! Some great choreography you've got going on there

My only comment in that the soldier who's head he grabs and slams down has a reaction that's a bit slow after he jumps over him. These soldiers look like they'd be highly trained, so I'd imagine their reactions to be really snappy.

Cool Beans

Hey thanks Tyson. Your right about the reaction of the guy. I will try to sharpen it up when I have the time. By the way, loved your short last time.

oh yeah! this animation looks greate!

you choosed best scene for reference
  07 July 2009
Yeah Man, animation is looking real nice. I'm digging that Parkour style. Good Job
  07 July 2009
Awesome! I agree with Tyson about the snap of the first soldier. Perhaps to make his slow reaction time more believable tho, you could have his head bounce a little as it hits the door...that combined with a nice 'CRACK' sound could look and feel really painful, and lead to his disorientation.

I'm definitely looking forward to more!
