With Under The Surface having been received so warmly by so many people (thank you!) I thought it might be fun to show my original rough idea! The images in this are from my original storyboarding/scripting work. In my own personal projects, I'm much more of a visual thinker, so I have a tendency to script out my stories in mini-storyboard form.

You'll see that, in comparison to the finished film, Under The Surface was originally a lot longer. The original concept involved the character moving through worlds that represented the four elements; for example, the desert = fire, the ocean = water. It proved to be an overly ambitious project, but I hope to perhaps use the abandoned sections for a future piece of work! For the final project, I ended up using just the water world because I thought, of the four separate worlds, it had the most to offer visually at the time of making the film.

No sound, unfortunately. The original placeholder track that I inserted over it when showing it in class was 'Define Dancing', from the soundtrack of Pixar's 'Wall-E', but I felt it was unfair to use a copyrighted piece of material for this...

I'd be very interested in your thoughts, if you have any! And I'm aiming to have some fresh new work available to watch soon!
