El Tigre Animatic with Animation

Here's an excerpt from the animatic I did for an episode of El Tigre called "Yellow Pantera." I think it's one of my favorite episodes of the series so far. This episode deals with Manny calling his father a coward and really believing it. Harsh stuff. The board was so good on this one that it made me want to animate the whole thing! But, that's crazy, so I just did as many scenes as I could in the time I had. In this sequence, Manny goes off and tries to defeat Mal Verde, the meanest bandido off all time. Of course, he has no idea what he's getting himself into. It was boarded by Eddie Trigueros and directed by Dave Thomas. I did the timing, rough animation, sound effects, temp music, and timecode.

Great Animatics. I would like to know what software did you use to create the different parts of the story (Sound, Storyboard, Animatics, etc).

Sean said...

Hey claudio, we do the storyboards in Photoshop, and the animatics in Flash. And we just import eh sound into Flash as well.

Claudio said...

And the time reference? You added it by hand??
I am curious because I am creating a Flash animated series too, but I am new to the whole process.


Thanks for the info.

Yup, I made us the foot and frame counter in flash. The black one is the overall count, and the green is keyframed to start at every new scene, with the red one used when scenes overlap (dissolves and such).
