Changelings Update #7 - Storyboards with Script Samples

in movies •  11 days ago

In this update, I want to share with you some samples of not only the storyboards but also the sections of script associated with them.

Now that these are being completed by Neil, I'll soon be able to meet with my visual effects supervisor and special effects artist to better suss out the cost of completing them along with how. The effects have gotten bigger as I've worked through the process, but I'd rather start big and pull back.

This Saturday, I'm meeting with Neil to finish working them out the last few moments of the transformation, including some Lovecraftian tentacles.

One thing that I added were the dutch shots that show pieces of Father Smith falling to the floor as he approaches the tub. It's a great reveal technique that I think will be not only gruesome but effective. The dutch angle was Neil's idea, but I think it works perfectly for the aesthetic. Who knows if the angle will live through production, but it's I think it works here in this form.

If anyone needs a little motion to bring the transformation to life, here's Norm's conceptual art stitched together as an animatic.

Don't forget to vote on the new font for Changelings!

I'll have more storyboards soon, along with an update regarding the 3D sculpture for the crowdfunding campaign.

Have a great night out there and stay scary!

WHO DIS IS

If you want to know who I am and what Distant Signal is, check this out. It's sort of a manifesto. The TL;DR is that I've won an award for producing, make a lot of reality TV, live in LA and think that artist and media incentives are misaligned and serve large corporations and not independent artists.

The fist horror / thriller film made on and with the Steem blockchain. Use this hashtag to find out all about it!

Mate these storyboards are great. I like how you say you prefer to start big then pull back; that’s a sound way of working.

I had to google ‘the Dutch angle’ - not sure I’ve heard that before but I’m certainly familiar with the effect. Feels perfect for suggesting that something in the world isn’t right.

This is all great man.

Wanna have a Dutch angle, here's one ;>)
( although I'm in Portugal now )

So much goodies in one single post. I was lucky to peak at this a couple of days ago on Telegram, it just looks so much better on the big(ger) screen.

No matter what happens to the project in a later stage, I love the way is progressing so far.

Keep up the good work, Phil and congratulate your storyboarding buddy from me :>)

P.S. I love myself some Lovecraftian tentacles!

Thanks! I’m getting closer to being able to crowdfund. Once the 3D model and sizzle are completed I can finally move forward with the crowdfund.

Can’t wait to show you the latest boards. We finally worked out the final moments of the transformation.
