Well, guess I’m the dark horse with the late start, we’ll see if I can catch up. Here’s my story board,
I don’t really expect you to be able to see it clearly or understand it. I drew it on my phone bill, and the only way I have to get it into the computer is with a crappy web cam. But anyway I just wanted to post a storyboard that wasn’t all fancy like the others.
So the basic synopsis: A screen test set up, 2 lights and 1 of those backdrop thingies. Schlitzy drunkenly enters, carrying his bottle. He trips over the backdrop and falls flat on his face (losing his bottle). He gets up to his hands and knees, notices the bottle is missing and crawls over to it. He grabs the bottle, and stands up, clonking his head on 1 of the lights. He sways back and forth while glaring at the light, and rubbing his head. He takes a swing at the light but misses, takes another and connects. The light spins around and smacks him in the back of the head. Schlittzy gets knocked down out of the frame by the light, his slipper and beer bottle fly back up. Cut to ground level close up of Schlittzy, he opens his eyes and sees his slipper. He makes kissy faces at it as if it were a small kitten, pets it, pulls it close to his face, then falls asleep using it as a pillow. The end.
So far I’ve blocked it in mostly (2 hours in). I tweaked the rig to be closer to my own style of rig, and built my own proxy. Here’s a zip with 2 mpg’s, one of the blocking in with my proxy, and the other with a low res of Schlitzy doing the blocking in.
Aack! I just realized I pretty much straight lifted my set from Kevin’s entry. OOps, I’m an idiot. Anyway that will be the first thing I change.
Good luck to everyone.
