Capstone Production Blog

Welcome to the production blog of my capstone animation. Over the course of the next 16 months, I will be updating this page with reports and previews of my capstone’s progress. This page will continue to get longer and longer over time with the most recent updates being closest to the bottom.

Currently, I am trying to narrow down ideas for my capstone but my main struggle is figuring out whether I will use music or not because there are certain songs and multiple ideas I would like to use but that creates the issue of licensing and managing all of that. So that is the main hurdle that I need to overcome in order to be more decisive in my thoughts regarding an idea.

No longer pursuing my original ideas involving rotoscoping or music due to the complications it would cause. I’ve decided to just go with something that will make people laugh as my next choice but I still want to do the other ideas so I still haven’t settled on anything.

Recently I came up with a script for a sitcom pilot based on a joke between myself and two friends and the idea of using that script as a jumping-off base seems to have some potential. The sitcom aspect is most likely influenced by a recent binge of WandaVision a week prior to writing the script. Because the script I wrote can only really be appreciated by the three of us, I would need to make some changes if I wished to use the same characters for the script/animation for my capstone.

Since last week I’ve created moodboards and concept art for my capstone, which you can view by clicking the link.

Not much progress was made regarding my project. I will be altering the script to be more appealing to a general audience and to match the format of a real script by next week. Since last week I met with a senior currently working on her capstone to ask her about her progress and workflow and that was fun.

Script has been formatted to fit Hollywood standards and can be viewed here. Changes may be made in the future but currently, I’m happy with where it’s at.

Storyboards have been drawn and can be viewed here. One of the storyboards was drawn out of order so the blue arrow on the last page is meant to show its correct placement on that page.

After making digital drawings of the storyboards an animatic has been made and can be viewed below.
