My first try-out/ animatic

 

Here are scenes from the animatic- the memories.

-Wanted to use the circle as a symbol for being stuck in one’s memories. One gets stuck in an endless circle of recollections where one cannot get out of its circular trappings, that it is not a linear path of moving forward and going on, but one is constantly going in circles.

-Perhaps one of the adjustments I can make for the end of my film is to show two parallel  lines (perhaps a path) where she embarks on to show that she is finally moving on from her sadness.

Here are some photos of the possible body postures that my character can pose in order to convey a sense of sadness and pining. Body postures may be crucial since it is a silhouette animation where facial expressions are not shown, so the postures are important in conveying the emotional state that she is in.

More concept research

I did some research on the kind of atmosphere that I wish to portray in my story. I like how the watery pavements are dimly lit and illuminated by the street lamps. The place is there but kind of faded at the same time as well.

I also like the posture and silhouette of the man waiting at the bus stop. He leans in front slightly with his head down–offers a glimpse into what he may be feeling.

Mood boards

This mood board helps me conceptualize how I wish to portray the memories of my character. Everything is faded, people are half there, half not, peoples’ faces are a blur, some elements of a memory may seem clearer than others (because we do not always remember everything crystal clear in our minds).
