Before Lynn and I started animation on Solstice (watch the full version here »> https://vimeo.com/79814871 ), we storyboarded the entire short film and made an animatic, which is a rough version of the story with music and sound. This way we can plan each shot’s timing, plan the animation and get a feel for how the short plays as a whole. We both split the work 50/50 between drawing the storyboards and editing and doing sound design. And if you have seen the final version, you’ll notice some small changes that we made between this stage and the final version.
Thanks so much to everyone who has watched Solstice and had such kind and enthusiastic things to say about it. We’re both thrilled at the reaction and very grateful for all your support! :) More behind the scenes and extra Solstice stuff coming soon!
