Working Title- an American Sign Language animation funded by the MN State Arts Board. This animation will be entirely silent, no sound whatsoever. There will be no subtitles. Only through these animatics do you get an exclusive sneak peak at what Beaks is signing.

Many of the notes in this animatic are simply a process thing. Even in my illustrations I make notes as I draw- it's a bit of a habit even if the notes are not needed. It is my belief that storyboards and the initial animatics be messy and quick in addition to clearly illustrating what is happening. That way one can make changes in the middle of the process without hesitation. Already this animatic has gone through at least a dozen revisions. Please do not hesitate to add your input! All opinions will be welcome and respected here.

Please note: the character design process is still under way. Many of the character designs may change later in the process.
