The animatic for my senior animation which will be in 2D. There's currently no audio, and it would ultimately be without dialogue aside from the automated voice coming from over the phone. Sound effects and music would accompany it. This version is a little older, I've story boarded some different shots and altered camera angles and still need to put it into the animatic but this is still the key parts of the story.
Plot- Percival, a young 20-something "hipster" with an affinity for retro and vintage items and appliances orders an old fashioned toaster to add to his collection. Things go wrong though when he ignores the directions and warning labels, resulting in the toaster coming to life as a demonic flying kitchen appliance, Pan, and chases him around his apartment. While Percival waits out help via the automated help line he dials, and the holding music that accompanies it, he's burnt and flung about his apartment, eventually getting the phone back as the machine is about to tell him how to stop the toaster. Unfortunately, Pan is quick to follow and Percival's fate is ultimately up for grabs as the automatic machine rattles off the possible solution while he's dragged off screen by the ever persistent Pan.
