Here is my animatic for this project. Since this was created the story changed from the two boys being followed to just the two boys, I chose to do this solely on the fact that I felt that it emitted the wrong sense of mystery in that, I wanted to work with child like mystery in that sense that a lot of children experience when they are younger. Climbing trees, making forts in the woods and exploring. Often captured in movies like The Goonies and in some ways Stephen Kings It you get a real sense of naive mystery. As opposed to a more aggressive sense of mystery that would have been portrayed by having a character follow the boys around as it would draw the audience away from what the boys are discovering and instead end up focusing on understanding the stalkers motives.
With each song representing an arc in the story, and 3 arcs in total.
I originally intended to animate all 3 segments however for the sake of project duration mirroring how long I have available before university submission it will have to be cut to two scenes at best.
And the rest to be completed outside of university after graduation.
Now that the stalker no longer exists in the story I decided to change the character personalities around with Reptile being docile and shy whilst the Canine being more headstrong and leading.
