TIMELINE

STORYBOARDING

To brainstorm my animation plotline I sketched out an overview of the story I wanted to tell. Each scene gradually zooms out in perspective.

CUTTING PAPER

Cutting out each individual piece to be scanned and transferred into AfterEffects. In my video, I wanted to maintain the "stop-motion" jumpy aesthetic, but also make sure Barry's movements were convincing.
