This is the final animatic for my University short graduation film, Acorns. Although some minor changes will be made in the final film, this serves it's purpose for timing and demonstrating my story in a time-based medium.

I drew each frame digitally in Photoshop using a rough, pencil-like brush in a few PSDs with hundreds of layers to separate lines, backgrounds and colour. I then composited these in Premiere and After Effects to achieve various camera movements and actions.

The music was done by the incredibly talented Benjamin Rusch, who composed and recorded the entire soundtrack. More of his work is available online at:

The film itself will be finished this May, however may only appear online in part due to festival submissions.
