A new set of storyboards has been put up for On The Sidelines (2018)!
OTS is a personal project for an animated short: In a world where The Narrative rules all, protagonists are radiant and those on the sidelines are doomed to be monochrome bystanders. When a new friend gets snagged in the colorful threads of plot devices a background character steps up to save her – storyline and destiny be damned.
It's a story about real and superficial relationships, choosing your own destiny and the rights of damsels in distress. Concept and storyboards by me.
There are currently only two roughly finished scenes. I came up with the initial concept for OTS in 2015 and have been coming back to on and off ever since. I was hoping to make it as my final MA film but time and story constraints led to the birth of Le Blanc (Blanked) instead - the characters for the latter heavily inspired by early concept art for OTS, created my colleague and concept artist Hannah Stevens. I hope to be able properly make OTS one day, but in the mean time please enjoy some storyboard scenes.
