The Gathering Storm: A Marauders Fan Film Table Read #1!
You’ve been asking for table reads so here you go! This is a familiar scene to anyone who’s read the books, and is the one scene that is borrowed from the text. Please excuse my awkward introduction, as well as the terrible camera quality (This is why there will be a professional manning the camera for the actual shoot). And for those who don’t know, Laura (Lily) lives in Orlando.
Starring: Laura Tarver as Lily, Sawyer Paine as Severus, and Morgan Capodilupo as The Fat Lady.
finals are over so I can finally post the rest of my moulin rouge stuff and move on! it was a fun project but my hands are itching to work on something new
Pictures From Last Night’s Costume Fitting Photo Shoot!
Last night we got a chance to get five of our six leads together- Laura, our Lily, is currently in Orlando- and so we had to get some pictures for you guys! For the film, Sirius and Severus will both be under high quality wigs and Remus will have his scars (some of the things we need money for). Ben’s hair will be cut and styled for Remus, Andrew will be hitting the gym to get into Quidditch Captain shape, and he’ll hopefully have glasses that aren’t the director’s!
The Gathering Storm: A Marauders Fan FIlm is in the final days of its Kickstarter campaign, and while we’re doing well, we still have a ways to go if we want to make this film a reality.
It’s absolutely doable, but not without your help. We need to reach our minimum by Monday, or we won’t be able to make a film. So donate what you can, and help us spread the word! We’ve got six days, and we’ll take all the support we can get.
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
I ask that no one removes the credit or source for this tutorial/guide please. thanks :)
And this is a keeper! No doubt about that! :)
I’m just gonna put this one on standby
for when I start my senior film!
