to do is start creating those storyboards. I have done a few already as practice to get proficient at it.
These need to be done and assembled as a video storyboard, where audio is also added.
This should essentially show the whole film.
to do is create some of the short scenes and try perfect them as much as possible, to see potential quality, understand efficient techniques to become proficient!
The general colours for each scene need to be completed. This will give us a more clear vision of the film.
The film's music needs to be explored and quite developed here; although a lot of the music can be done later.
That's pretty much it.
A solid 15 to 40 minutes or longer in length... It is dependent on our story!
I would love for it to be at least 40 minutes, being of a theater film standard.Here are some Quotes by Hayao Miyazaki:
‘...--the type of animation that cannot be made by a single individual... the final product can never be from one person alone. It must belong to everyone, as well as to each individual. ’ Pg 20 STARTING POINT 1979-1996
‘If there is a hill over there , you will wonder what you would be able to see if you climbed it... This sort of work is the foundation required to establish the setting.’ pg 35 STARTING POINT 1979-1996
‘...Live with more poverty, more discipline, more intensity
Raise the standards for everything within oneself
...This Generation looks with suspicion upon revolution, romance, love, great ideologies’ pg 265 STARTING POINT 1979-1996
‘To me, the most interesting thing about real cartoon films is that you create a world, you fully exploit the space in it, and then you create the logical structure of a beginning, a development, a twist and a conclusion. This is the most fun to watch, and what I find motivates me the most. Cartoon films are fake. And because they’re fake, you can tell a big fib, but I always like it when it seems like there’s also a bit of truth in the fibs. I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I’m not very good at lying though, and that I’ll have to work on it so I can tell a great big lie someday.’ Pg 309 STARTING POINT 1979-1996
‘Young people these days are growing up at a time, different from the past, when it is hard to see what is to come. I am sure that some of them will recognize the flimsiness of the current ways of expression and want to make films, not “anime.” They should never give up their efforts to create new, compelling characters, and they should always challenge themselves to depict humans with greater universality and depth. But this is totally unrelated to Japan’s animation industry spreading through the world.’ Pg 72 TURNING POINT 1997-2008
A requirement to join the fun:
Visual art ability: take a look at my art gallery here on DeviantART. It would be preferred if you are around my level or greater. The skill of creating a composition is important, and so is the skill of good judgment.*
Scene art/Scene Designer: trees, plants, flowers, clouds, mountains, grass, etc.*
Costume designer: I will have these nailed down, but would love someone to discuss, explore, collaborate with.*
Musical talent: able to compose and produce great music.*
The ability to create and contribute to the story itself is massive for me.*
Great animation skill: simple yet perfect main/key Animation/Image sequences, or small animations such as birds flying or leaves blowing in the wind. Filler animation frames, improving key frames, make the animation longer with more content. Slow-motion animation scenes which requires a lot of frames only changing a little bit by little bit.
Special effects: Better than the average AMV person, particle and magic effects, 3D skills. *
Sound effects: Need to ensure your sound samples are all copyright free. You either create or record (This is fun
) them yourself or find free ones.Other people so far:
I have a few friends that I discuss with (special thanks), but nothing solid.
I am located in Perth, Australia. You may be located anywhere.
The only parts we can publicly share is concept art, promotional pieces, trailers, previews.
The Screenplay and Storyboards will be strictly forbidden. Concept art may eventually tighten up on the security/privacy.Financial plans?
I think if we can eventually pull together a solid trailer, we could potentially get crowd funded. With funding, we can focus on the project a lot more. It can also help with getting more resources. And can potentially lead to more projects.
