In an effort to better estimate everything that needs to be done on this video I have fully storyboarded the video. I'm going to break this up into three posts because I think it would be absurdly long as a single post. Anyway, the first few storyboards will look very familiar from my Backgrounds post, but they'll start to look new after that. Also, I made them all in grayscale so that the would look the way I expected them to when printed.
Oh I got the pig's brother made. I originally planned for the two of them to look very similar but this is how he ended up:
He cracks me up every time. Anyway, back to the storyboards.
We then see the whole room. the pig sets a note down on the counter and exits
This shot will start in the same way that the opening shot does. The text on the bill board will initially be the only visible object. Then, one window in the building on the left will light up. The rest of the windows will light up in sequence as indicated by the squiggly arrows. The rest of the scene will then fade into view.
Further down the block, the pig will get into a cab. Ideally I will time it out so that the entry of the cab is in sync with the fade in of the percussion at the beginning of the song, as though it is being heard from the car's radio.
Finally the pig will arrive at his house. The sun will set behind the house and the screen will fade to black.
In part 2 of the storyboards, the wolf sets out in search of the pig.
