A blogroll on our efforts to create an 8 min (OPEN MOVIE) animation short on the absolutely free Animux pipeline.

Sequence 11 storyboard (wip)

Sequence [11] – At the Park
The scene is set in a park where Bella is sitting on a bench trying to read her book. Pavo
is leaning on the other side of the bench showering her with cliché compliments, clearly
annoying her and making her uncomfortable. The whole time they are talking, Bella isn’t
looking away from her book, and every time she speaks, it’s with a sense of sarcasm,
annoyance, or disdain.
PAVO: So, do you come here often?

BELLA: Uh huh

PAVO: Yeah, me too
BELLA: That’s funny, because I’m here all the time and I’ve never seen you before

Oh, well... what I meant is that I plan to, now that I know you’re here of course.

Bella Glares up at him for a second before going back to her book

BELLA: Look, I’m trying to read, so can you just go away now
PAVO: Well, you know I would, but I don’t know if I can find my way home. You see, I’ve become lost in your beauty.

Voice off screen to the side behind Pavo
TURK: That’s all you see in her, isn’t it?

Turk enters the scene from the side
PAVO: Huh?

TURK: Did it ever occur to you that there is more to appreciate than just the way she looks? Do you even appreciate what she’s trying to do for the School for Girls? Do you admire the fact that she is educated and likes to read? Do you know anything that she likes to do, like feeding the fish in the pond? Do you see anything other than looks?

As he’s saying this, you can see the look of an epiphany appear on Bella’s face, and in a
thought bubble, you see the list of pros and cons, and the con disappears in a puff of
smoke. Bella then speaks up realizing that Turk is a great way to get away from Pavo.
BELLA: Turk, I’m getting kind of tired. Would you be so kind as to walk me home?

Turk perks up with excitement and Pavo’s mouth drops with disbelief.
TURK: Umm... of course

They begin to walk off together
PAVO: Wait, Bella, don’t leave. You’re like water to me; I can’t live without you

BELLA: (Whispering to Turk) Walk faster.

As they walk off together, they share a sustained glance of admiration
