Here's a little bit to get started. I began with a rough storyboard (top left) - edited to the music track. I kept it all bare bones. No commitments. I played around a while and quickly put everything together. Soon after, I developed a more "Proof of Concept" version (top right) of the storyboard. This was mainly so I could sell the band on the idea and noodle around with a little more detail. At this point, the story was set - and these boards provided much of the layouts for the final. This way I could still work small and not get caught up in those pesky details. The bottom image is a capture of the final shot. Every scene is a color exploration for me. My background is TV animation. I used to do a ton of line only "Warner Bros." style stuff, so this film is also a first for much of my color work.
