so i made a storyboard for my stop-mo before i started to make the final product. i had done this after i’d taken the photographs i was going to use in the animation. they are below (photographed as they were too large to scan)
i discovered that i didn’t need to end ones because of what i had going on in my animation – that the cmyk colours form a cage which then disappears.
if you can see the grey lead circles with letters in them – they represent where each bird will be at any given frame.
