OHS Big Game storyboards

January 6, 2010

Here’s a first go at some storyboards for the Big Game. Back to slow pitch softball. I think it works much better with slow pitch. For this one, I think I’ll have one song playing the entire time, Who’s Won’t be Fooled Again.

There are going to be a lot of dynamic shots in this one, so it might be hard to animate. Swinging bats, running players, high fiving, etc. I’d like it to look decent, although some of the charm I guess is from it looking ridiculous.

Another problem is that unedited, Won’t get Fooled Again is 7 minutes long. If I can keep it interesting for that long, it should be fine. But I think a better option would be to edit out about 3-4 minutes. It is pretty repetitive in the middle, so I think it could be removed without much problem.

Anywise, this is the stuff I usually do for myself to help plan out the movie, but I thought I’d publish these ones so you could see what goes on from idea to final product. Enjoy



He Back: Some Storyboards

November 30, 2009

Without a tablet, storyboarding on the computer is much harder than it needs to be. Anywise, I decided to sit down and crank some out. I think next time, I’ll sketch them on paper and scan them, which will take much less time. With the tablet, it should be much easier too.

By the way, the Big Game existed in my head for 2 years as a softball game. I decided to go with football for the storyboards to try something out. Still haven’t decided which. I think I’m leaning back towards slow pitch softball. Either way, the idea of the story will be the same, and you can get a taste of that in the storyboards, even if it’s just a small one.

The Big Game

Video problem solved?

November 13, 2009

I tried posting my OHS video on Vimeo the other day, and it didn’t look good at first. The service said I would receive an e-mail when the upload was complete. Apparently on Vimeo, if you’re not a Plus member, you have to wait in line for your video to be processed. I checked back a couple hours later, and it said the video had been uploaded, but that there was a problem in the format. Then this morning, I got an e-mail from them saying that my video had been posted and all was well. The quality looks really good. I haven’t tested it with sound yet, but looks like Vimeo is the answer:

He Back

Just got Flash, quit poker, so I’m ready to get back to him. One thing I really want to find is a nice way to put it on YouTube. Exporting as .mov did not work. Well, it worked, but YouTube tore it apart. Then I tried to export it as an AVI, but my 20 second video with no sound became 310MB, and it still dropped frames. So I’m trying Vimeo. We’ll see how that goes. It would be really great if I could get the videos onto YouTube, so if anyone has any ideas, please send.
