Check out the latest developments to the film
The second half of CG Layout is all about blocking. That means the placement of characters and camera in 3D space which includes both motion and timing.
The GIF file above shows how the 2D Animatic was translated into 3D Layout. Knowing these changes will be a huge help when it comes to setting up the stop-motion shoot.
In this shot the camera cranes up while Br. Thomas climbs a stack of holy books in order to look out of a very high window.
Gracie’s version of Br. Thomas shows the flustered monk, as usual, late for work and running past one of the Church Fathers with the blue Dragonfly in hot pursuit. In the film the statues never show signs of life, only perceived judgement and long shadows. I love that in Gracie’s version, it seems that the statue and the dragonfly have an understanding about Br. Thomas.
