Brother Thomas Film
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.
Boarding the first act in the Scriptorium has been much more involved than I first anticipated. Mostly because the story slows down to take in a richness of atmosphere, introduce the characters and showcase certain details in the space. I’ve spent a lot of time working out lighting issues, exploring a graphic quality for the stained glass, and creating some depth for that atmospheric richness to play out in. It’s a long sequence so I’ve broken it into two separate postings.
I hope to have part 2 up by the end of the week!
If you click on the 8 panel image you can see the entire story sequence.
I’m coming to realize that I can’t simultaneously post finished images AND move the Br. Thomas project forward (not while having a family-life and keeping my day-job). So for the time being this blog becomes a forum for posting works in progress.
Here’ a page of rough beats for the first act. This hits the major story points and starts to give some sense of cinematography and pacing to the piece. I can’t wait to start refining these images and start filling in what happens between the beats.
