Whistle for Me - Short horror animation


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Based on the story "Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You My Lad" by H.R. James. I started this while ago and just have not have the spirit, time or energy to get very far with it. Now the script is written - I've really boiled the story down to the bare bones and these are the first 3 storyboards to make me think I've made progress. So much more to do, there will be an ancient shipwreck washed up to shore, a small hut/house at the edge of the beach and I hope some interesting effects for me to try. I want to make the main, and only character, into a woman and like my last film there will be no spoken dialogue... but there will be written dialogue.

Good luck with the new project, and keep the spirits high as much as you can. Everyone have those days sometimes, so keep trying.:cowboypistol:

Thanks Igor

I think everyone is having these days all the time lately! Getting this started has lifted my mood a bit!  Once I really get into this it will be VERY distracting.

One more panel of progress. I have to design a shock or small home on the shoreline and I'm not getting a clear idea of what that should be. I do think this ancient  boat washed ashore after the storm  will work at least. I am LONG from getting this to animation stage.  :(

Well try doing some sketches first to see if you can get different ideas. Then just block out the scene you sketched and go from there. If you share a story with us, maybe we could pitch few ideas for you. 🙂

I just don’t have time to sketch it out or a moment of peace and quiet to work things out. I have a solid idea of how it will play out, I just need to get to working it out on paper and in c4d!  Once I make the character I am looking forward to using the character object for rigging as I haven’t used it in a long while.

Sounds good, at least you have a plan. 😊

Everyone works differently I know but I actually visualize the entire project from start to finish in my head, then write it out before starting to make assets and then figure out the more technical stuff like simulations of complicated shots. Most of the time I don't even need storyboards as it just lives in my head until I get it out. I don't recommend working this way, mind you, but since it's only me on these projects I don't annoy anyone else with my weird process! 🤪
