Storyboards!

Hey everyone! Here's a rough pass at the whole short. I'm tryin to learn flash at the same time , so please mind some of the rougher edges. It's still early on but critiques are welcomed of course, and there are also 2 different endings that I'm trying to settle on. Let me know which you prefer.

Thanks for looking!

Haha ! Excellent:) Can't wait to see the animation. First ending works better for me. Really made me laugh, so simple but yet very efficient.
Great job!

Roland said...

That is excellent. Cute and funny. I agree with Gregory both endings are good but the first is more concise

Robert Bandel said...

flaviano said...

kevin said...

great work bobby! this really flows nicely.

Tirzah said...

Super awesome Bobby! I like the alternate ending when she kisses his head off. x-D

I likey where this is going Bobby!

I'm not 100% about the moon transition between locations. Maybe you need a little arc so that there feels like more distance between the girl and the boy? I think as you've got it the moon should at least adjust in some way so it feels like more of a cut. There was a slight moment of visual confusion where I wasn't sure where I was.

I think the ending needs some tightening up too. The gags are good, but I think the timing may be off a bit. I'm wondering if a combination of both endings is the way to go?

Anyway, keep cranking! You always do impressive work.

HAHAHA... I like the alt ending better. Great work my friend!! I especially like the soundtrack...

Nice one Bobby-really good animatic, funny just in Flash form. The falling head ending is funny but i guess the 1st version works better.

awesome stuff. i'm rooting for the alternate ending!

Mark Geyer said...

Hey Bobby:

Nice work, can't wait for it to be finished. I think the moon sequence can work, it'll need more time added during that transition (3 seconds).

The original ending is best, with maybe the zombie kid looking down slightly (because his arm fell) and looking back up at her with a grin. It's simple, but simple is best with this abrupt ending.

Again, always great stuff Bobby!

soooooooooo excited!

Bobby Pontillas said...

Hi thanks for taking a look and leaving your thoughts everyone! I floated it around work a little today and both endings are in a dead heat, depending on the viewer's personality, Interestingly enough!

I'll post up a newer "post-mentor critique" version and soon as I get one! Again thanks for havin a looksee!!

hi bobby,

good stuff! couple things off the top of my head:

-- i think you could underplay her reaction at the beginning. rather than having her cry a lot and ball her fists to rub her eyes, etc., you may get more mileage out of a "less is more" approach as she holds the photograph.

-- i don't think you need the heart thought bubble for the zombie boy at 32 seconds in. don't tell the audience right away; it's more interesting if we go "ok, a zombie. now what?" and then you answer the question later.

-- along those lines, one option is to start the film with the shot of the zombie boy coming out of the ground (aka, seconds 22-28). maybe he even looks menacing as he's silhouetted from a low camera angle from the moonlight. it sets up an expectation for a different kind of film and we as the audience would ask more questions.

then you could cut to the girl and introduce her, and then back to the zombie and show him sniffing the flower, picking it up, and the leg gag, etc.

-- i don't think you need "4 days later". i thought it was a much weaker joke than the rest of the gags you have, and it's a lot weaker than the joke in the shot immediately after (zombie boy dragging himself to the house on his hands). the "4 days later" reduces the impact of that strong physical gag, i think, because you're telling us, then showing us, rather than just showing us.

--i like both endings, but i think i like the first one more.

anyway, just some immediate thoughts; take 'em or leave 'em, of course. it's *your* film! :)

You are a comical genius, such a lovely piece, lovely short. Hard to tell something in a very short time, seemed to me that it missed something, not exactly sure what.
Keep it up, can't wait to see more. Make sure the camera pan is in a slow constant moving, you don't want a pan and sudden stop in the final film.
For example, when you do a pan toward the girl in the begining, it comes to a complete slop, in your final one, make sure camera is always constant move, even when it's very very slow.

take care.

Dave David said...

Hahah nice!

I like the alt-ending.
Keep on truckin'!

TJ Phan said...

LOL! You don't mess around Bobby--this is awesome!

Which ending--that's a tough one. I personally laughed more during the alt. ending. I think it was because of his last efforts with the rose. But I do see that the first is cleaner. Sorry, I'm no help--I think you'll win either way!

TJ Phan said...

Alright, I'm deciding--my vote's for the alt. ending! I like the multiple gags in that shot. Also, it ends on a "happier" note.

pointpusher said...

I vote for alt ending as well, but, maybe with the arm not falling off. This should be great fun to watch man. I can't wait!

Eric Orchard said...

Man, you can draw. Beautiful stuff and happy birthday!

Ivan Oviedo said...

Hi Bobby, thanks for coments in my blog, your work is very good to! I'm your fan!!!

gemini82 said...

Definitely, go with the alternate ending.

You could possibly replace the four days later title card with a visual gag, reflecting the extreme passage of time. The title card just breaks the passing.

Jason Newkirk said...

awesome stuff dude! Cant wait to see more.

Hahah - this is great.

I thought you said you didn't know how to use flash!

It's better than a lot of other flash stuff you see around the place and this is just your animatic!

So awe-inspiring.
