American Football Animation (cont. updates)

Basic storyboard for what'll happen. I will be animating this after I've handed in my Dissertation proper - so basically the 2nd half of the semester. 

I don't really know what to call it. Since this is basically a 10 second animated introduction to the Uni American Football team I play for, the Falmouth Tridents it doesn't really have a name. Anyway, so, this blog post (a long with The Boy in the Flowerbed post) is basically gonna stay like this and I'll update it and add to it as I do stuff, rather than posting endlessly. Less clutter then.

This is a rough look of what the short will look like. The style at least.

I'm laying it out like a book (there will be writing added on the pages). As of today (Saturday 12th) I've also keyframed out the 10 second thing, so I'll be inbetweening it and line testing it all this week. I'm going to work alternate days on this and the Boy in the Flowerbed and Love-Hate (alice's project). Anyway like I said this blog will be a rolling blog post and there's more drawings that will appear every other day or so.

What I want to have eventually is a graphic book of Football for Dummies. So there's a breakdown of the positions, the history of the AFL and NFL, the hall of fame, key players and a couple of pages for each team with the most impact players in recent memory and then the classical players (so for the Cowboys it would be a big picture of DeMarcus Ware and then smaller profiles of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith, Randy White, Bullet Bob Hayes, etc etc), and the rules, and famous games and moments and of course NFL films. Obviously I have a shit load more drawing and digital painting to do.

So the pictures on these pages are a bit randomly organized at the minute but that's the direction I'm going in with this. It'll be a long term thing that I'll continue after my degree.

Falmouth Tridents! Yay!
