643 Project 1

Posted on Sep 3, 2012

I had a number of ideas for the first project and wanted to produce a sequence that would introduce a character, with a twist at the end. I chose to not go with a mask theme. Instead, I’m showing a character that is confined, either in a modern or futuristic prison or hospital. I’ll produce an animatic for this since I envision such a specific setting.

My ideas seemed to be getting too long for a 6 second sequence so I actually did live-action pre-viz for my animatic!

Looks like I can cut it to work in 6 seconds.

Regarding the setting, I had the scene in The Silence of the Lambs in mind when Hannibal Lecter is introduced. Anthony Hopkins standing in that plastic sealed cell is great. They chose to use the plexiglass in lieu of bars because the bars presented too many photographic difficulties.
