Toon Boom Storyboard Pro Clean Animatic—Scene 6

First, I'm now calling this version of my animatic "clean" instead of "final." I changed the name simply because I realized that it's technically not the final version of the animatic. This is a cleaner version of the rough animatic I completed for my viewing only. Now I'm working on neater version that will be good enough to show other people in order to get feedback. The final version will be the one that includes any changes made based on the feedback I get.

Second, I am pleased to present scene 6! I have now completed 7% of the clean animatic (I've updated the chart at right.) I'm becoming increasingly adept at using Toon Boom Storyboard Pro 2 and the Bamboo tablet; so much so that I've stopped missing pencil and paper, at least for the animatic step. Tell me what you think of the video, thanks!

Final Animatic—Scene 5 Pan

Using Storyboard Pro 2, a Wacom Bamboo tablet and a Blue Microphones Snowflake mic, I completed scene 5 of my final animatic. This scene is a pan from the opening credits, up the wall of a building to a window which introduces us to our main characters, Honey and Luthor.

The music is temporary but the sound effects are, at this point, for the final version. The hand hitting the window sound was recorded by me the microphone. I just plugged the mic into my laptop via its USB connector, held it near a window and smacked my hand against the window. Voila, a sound effect is born!
