Storyboards-Inside the Scriptorim (Part 2)

Here’s the second part of the Scriptorium sequence, which means I’m done with the first act!!…for now anyways. It will be a relief to get Thomas outside and focus more on story than atmosphere.
If you click on the 8 panel image you can see the entire story sequence.
In the second half of the sequence Brother Thomas watches the dragonfly escape through a crack in the window. His curiosity outweighs his better judgement, he abandons his work and uses a stack of holy books to get a better view out the window. From his view through the cracked window it’s as if Thomas gets a glimpse of creation for the first time…fleeting as the glimpse may be. For just as Thomas blinks to take in the landscape his tower of books slip from under him and he falls in disgrace.
Steve–the atmospherics here are fantastic. And I really like the drawing/ line style you’ve got here, too. This has the feel of an “important” work.
Good to hear from you Brian!
Thanks for the kind words. The film is very important to me but it seems to connect with folks across a fairly wide spectrum. I wrote the story over a decade ago so it’s nice to see it finally start evolving.
These are just supposed to be storyboards but I can’t seem to move forward (at least in the scriptorium) without establishing a strong sense of atmosphere. I should have something from the second act up in a week or so.
I can’t think of a better way to describe it Matt. Either way you know he’s in trouble with somebody.
Delightful, I laugh following the image progression, a real playful but trapped feeling. The kind of feeling I remember having when I am grounded to my room but decide to make a game out of it somehow.
