Changes to the story

Today I had an msn meeting with Rohan, to talk about the storyboard. And we made some changes. The first part where Miss Maddi puts her umbrella away and gets splashed by a car is gonna be replaced by maddi entering the scene on the left, and then the umbrella is taken by the wind, that will already get Maddi angry, then mudd coms into the screen (from the right) and land on her shoes, that will get her even more angry, then she looks and sees Kiki digging, looks at her own shoes and then she runs towards Kikis to steal her boots. Kiki will smack her in the head with her spade and walk out of the screen and leaves maddi alone on the ground. Kiki comes back with boots for Maddi and they jump in the puddles together.

We're working on the storyboard.

Kiki test

I made a quick test of kiki walking (its NOT done yet!)

First storyboard

This is the first storyboard, Rohan and I will have to talk about it tomorrow on msn. Rohan also made a storyboard and tomorrow we will match them so we get one very good storyboard. :) Maybe its still a bit long if we want to tell our story in 30 seconds.. so maybe we have to make a selection which shots are essential and which are not.

How big are they exactly?

I was thinking... how big is Miss Maddi and how big is Kiki.. I came across this when I was making the storyboard.. maybe something like this?

Getting started!

I've been teamed up with Rohan, his character is a grumpy old woman named Berel Maddi (see Rohan's Blog)

After a few mails back and forth, we decided to meet on msn today, so we could talk about our ideas. We already had some ideas in the mail where Miss Maddi is grumpy and walking down the street avoiding holes (which Kiki made) and getting annoyed. There would also be rain. Kiki would be digging and Miss Maddi would have special interest in Kiki's boots. The end would be that the will both be jumping in the puddles and be happy.

Short scenario,

Miss Maddi walks down the street with an umbrella, the rain stops and she puts away her umbrella. A car comes by and splashes her. She gets very annoyed and angry, her shoes are all wet and dirty. She walks on and meets Kiki, who is just digging like a maniac, never minding Miss Maddi. Miss Maddi is annoyed by Kiki, but then she sees Kikis boots. She looks at her own shoes being dirty an all.. She tries to steal Kiki's boots but Kiki doesnt like that and hits Miss Maddi on her head with her shovel. Miss maddi falls on her butt and Kiki runs away. It begins to rain again and we see Miss Maddi begin really angry and annoyed. Kiki comes back with other boots for Miss Maddi. Miss Maddi puts on the boots, and walks around carefully. Kiki watches her and tries to show her how to use the boots. She jumps in a puddle and laughes very loud. Miss Maddi steps into the puddle with one foot (really carefull) Kiki still jumps in the puddle really happy and dances around. Miss Maddi looks at Kiki and decides to join Kiki. Then they both are jumping in the puddle.

Im going to make a storyboard for this story. Rohan is doing the same, and then we will get the two storyboards together and decide what are the best shots and ideas.

I choose the girl with one dark eye and black hair to get started with. I named her Kiki. I imagined she is a little bit nuts, and completely focussed on digging.. and her shovel of course. Her shovel is like her 'teddybear'. She is very enthousiastic about everything... but mostly about digging. She is very happy and energetic, but when she finds nothing in the ground she is very dissapointed.


These are the first drawings I made when we began our workshop designing our character.

First Post

Hello Norwich,

I'm exited about this project, I think it will be a lot of fun to work together through the internet and I hope the outcome will be great. :)

I will tell you a little bit about myself,
My name is Laura and I'm 21 years old. I enjoy making animation very much when its funny, I'm not so much into "very serious" animation. I like to watch it, but I dont want to make it. :)
Later, I will add some links where you can see movies I already made. So you can see what kind of animator I am.

I'm going to draw the character I designed in the computer (tvpaint/mirage) I dont mind working with someone who works in a different technique but the same is also fine.
