Storyboard hell

I'm currently creating a Storyboard for the Zeus & Leda animation and am reminded of how much I hate storyboarding. The process is just tedious, because I'm not patient enough to create well processed shots. I just quickly scribble my way through it, resulting in crappy rough drawings that communicate just enough for me. Basically the quality is comparable to what would happen if I was drunk and scribbled something on the back of a beermat (?) (bierviltje).

I like details and I like carefully planning drawings out but that comes later in the process. Now it's all about working out the story, not so much the layout. Traditionally though, it's logical that you also carefully plan the layout, character poses in your storyboard, but I like to work a bit rougher now and work out the precisions later.

The positive side of it all is that once I have finished the Storyboard, I can start doing what I love, which is creating character designs, creating backgrounds and finally animating the thing.

So now it's heads up high, drinking unhealthy doses of cafeine and rush through it.

Oxfam Novib Buy Fair promotion animation

Here's something from last year which I had a hand in (character designs and some animation thingies), along with Conchita Mulder, Tiddo Muda, Jasper van Nieuwenhuijzen, Anna Eijsbouts, Niels Beekes and Anna Eijsbouts.
This has circulated on some of their blogs for several centuries, so nothing new here, but it's still nice to post because after all I worked on it as well and it's quite fancy (not half as bad as I seem to remember).

I still have some unresolved trauma's from attempting to work with the Puppet tool though. It's an animation method that feels quite unnatural and far too Hocus Pocus technical for me. I might tell my shrink about it during my next visit. I repeat things often. I repeat things often.
