To get used with the process of animatics, I've done a quick first experience on it, using a scene from Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" as reference.
Currently working on a second, more complex, version of the performance "Lisboa em Voo de Peixe".
This time I wanted to make a better animation, less illustrated, more animated. Therefore, and with some of the budget for the project, I invited four colleagues to help me animate it.
My mother is responsible for the music, I'm for the animation and a scene director, Caroline Bergeron, also engaged in the project.
While in charge of the making of the animation, I'm a Director, Producer, Designer and Illustrator/Animator. It's been a great experience, learning how to communicate and manage a team. My colleagues are amazing, and helping me as much as possible, making it not my animation project, but our project.
I've also asked a photographer, Pedro Tavares, to help by taking the photos when there are photographed backgrounds. I usually take initial photographs and send him these, which he uses as reference.
It's going well so far, we hope everything can be finished by November!
