BEAT BOARDS_PG 3-C1400W

This is the third and last installment of the story beats.  Brother Thomas wakes up in a field and finds that once again he is late for work AFTER blowing off the entire day before.  With great trepidation he makes his way past the august aisle of statues, up the stairs, and into the scriptorium….

You probably can’t tell from the beats exactly what happens next but you’ll just have to wait until I can board it.  In the meantime enjoy the pictures and the next time I post it will be with a first draft of the storyboards from the first act.

Even though the story arc for Br. Thomas is firmly in place the second act leaves lots of room for development.

Basically Thomas blows off work that day and finds great joy as he celebrates his freedom with the animals, which ends in a moment of epiphany.  From there he sits down to reflect, observe, and record what he has experienced.  He paints late into the evening, changing his palette as the light changes, and finishing his work lit by shafts of moonlight filtering through the trees.

As you can see from the beats I have plenty to flesh out.

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.BEAT BOARDS_PG 1c-1400W

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.
