My story is about a comical/painful walk back to the car after a graduation dinner. I wore a pair of shoes that made me feel super tall and majestic, but they caused my feet a lot of pain. My boyfriend and I were parked quite a ways away from the venue.
I chose this story because I feel like it had more material in terms of character. My boyfriend is a very chivalrous person, but I'm super stubborn and like to do things on my own...and I hate being picked up.
Progress: Reference, Paradigm, and Script Markup
---I really want to push the gags pretty far, a lot farther than what happened in real life. Instead of just showing myself limpingin a funny way to avoid getting picked up...I want to have the caricature of myself do crazy things like hang glide, levitate, or ride in a kangaroo pouch. I'm gonna try and make this read. Wish me luck!
And now I have thumbnails!
I remember this great episode of the I.T. crowd where the character Jen gets a painful pair of shoes. Good reference!!! Watch this show! Great comedy!
These are links to clips from the shoe episode:
I also did a little re-writing with Post-it notes. They are handy!
And here it is folks! I also edited together an animatic. It is available at this link:
"We're almost there"
"Maybe we could walk arm in arm instead?"
Thank you all for your helpful comments and encouragement! I had a great time in this class, and look forward to storyboarding even more!
