The animation I’m working on has a couple of different styles – character animation with illustrations and a low-fi in camera section. I’ve produced a rough ‘Animatic’ to get a clear idea on timings etc.
“Simply put, animatic is an animated storyboard. Boards are brought into an editing program and are cut together with the correct timing and pace of the film. They include basic sound effects, dialogue recordings and scratch soundtrack.” Bloop Animation
Here’s a great example of an animatic sequence alongside the final film taken from Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’.
