If I saw this description for a two hour feature film I'd watch it.  It sounds like something I'd like!  But 11 seconds?

Agreed! If you want to write a lot of background story for your own sake, that's actually a great idea. It will help. But to convey what you just said BEFORE even getting to the animation that is only 11 seconds long will be nearly impossible. Just keep that in mind when you're choosing. You are very unlikely to get that story across to anyone who hasn't read the paragraph you wrote above, which could confuse the audience. You want the story to be as clear as possible to the viewer.

I believe that there is no intention from GREENBERET to convey the story details in the dialogue. Just like you said he/she is probably just looking what happened before the dialogue plays out.

Re: A Night With Danger and Hope..!!

Thanks for your valuable time friends,
sorry if i didn't explain my idea well, i don't have any intention to make a whole movie tongue
I am going to animate only 11 sec sound only, tongue
In my old wip's post people want to know about background, like why he is talking, where, why, what, how etc.
So am only trying to explain that thing first. smile

Here is the my progress so far -

That only for BG, poses not final and placement also not final.

Re: A Night With Danger and Hope..!!

As JKR said, I think your story needs to be clear to the audience. 

Given that you only have 11 seconds, it seems like you really need to keep things simple.

I like your ideas.  It just feels like you have too many great ones: the tropics, powder kegs, cliffs, a helicopter, a spooky house.

The image you posted feels like the visuals for a fun two hour film, dropped into a collage.

Re: A Night With Danger and Hope..!!

i like the idea although if you simply play out the animation in that background with the audio given to us, it might simply come across as  a woman that had a crash and wants to survive so she can see her daughter again. all the missing daughter vip stuff might not come across at all. this is not a bad thing btw. good luck and i look forward to seeing it tongue


i will sleep when i'm dead :-P

Re: A Night With Danger and Hope..!!

This sounds great! I always think the more you know about the background of a character/scene the better. Even if you don't actually show it, the little nuances and character quirks that might come through will set you apart from someone who hasn't given it as much thought and gives the obvious.

I do agree though you don't want the scene to be tooo cluttered. If you can condense some of the ideas, even if they're subtle hints, you'll still have that sense that it's deeper than this one clip.

Or not, like I said it sounds great regardless, can't wait to see it finished.

Re: A Night With Danger and Hope..!!

How introduce the missing daughter..... with a picture that the mother watch ?
If the animation is int this shot, I don't think that it's nice to use only 5% of your screen for an acting (except in french series... XD oh I'm bad !), optimize as well as possible your frame.

Re: A Night With Danger and Hope..!!

I like your idea but like the others say you won't be able to convey that in 11 seconds.  It's good to have a background to the story but I feel like what you are trying to do is way to much for this clip.  I saw so many scenes setup trying to tell a story in the last competition but the animation was lacking or worse.  I wish you luck either way but I think maybe you should find a different way to convey the story.  I like the idea of the lady looking at a picture of her daughter.  I think that might help tell your story a bit better without confusing the viewers. Good Luck!
