About this Blog

I am an MSc Animation & Visualisation student at DJCAD in Dundee, Scotland. "Once Bitten" is the working title for my personal project and final outcome short film. The characters in my film will be 2D, animated digitally, but the environments they inhabit will be filmed in live action.

"Once Bitten" is a story about a woman who meets a wolf cub alone in the forest, the mood is light and playful and about the pair of new friends escaping their normal lives. However the mood darkens when the cub accidentally falls into a human trap and his mother catches up with him and his new companion.

New(er) animatic!

Here we go again! Another animatic, now with slightly more changed timing, a timecode and a new ending! "ooooo"

I was spurred to make some of these changes when i peer reviewed my last animatic with people who hadn't seen any of the development for it so far. This was very useful: Kaitlin who is an experienced writer and storyteller gave me some advise about my ending- that i needed to show the emotions the pup was feeling- otherwise the ending seemed detached. So in this new version we see the pup's face in the final shot, and we also see the apple (both these things tie down the story nicely as the whole thing starts with them). Also in the new version i've added some ambient scary music towards the end, to fill the silence and indicate a tone of foreboding- i'm just trying it out- originally the plan was not to bother with a score.
