Eros & Psyche - The movie

This thread is dedicated to sharing with you the production of the story of Eros & Psyche, and to seek out collaborations with modelers, cinematographers, voice over actors, and just about any other roles under the sun that this production will be able to afford and require to shine almost as bright as Aphrodite's glory... because nothing shines brighter then the glory of the goddess of love... (hubris and all) ;]

This animation will be part of a web series re-telling the legends of Greek mythology.  Beyond that, maybe the episodes can be strung together into a proper movie. Also, this production will be "limited animation" kind of like Archer, in that there will be no extravagant 200+ character Broadway musicals, so good cinematography and dialogue will be our focus.

To get this party started, here's a rough animatic, 4 of 15 minutes of the first episode (or act I)

Any help with this project will be rewarded with your name in the credits (if you so chose).
Thank you in advance for keeping an eye on this thread.

Cheers,
Krios

The blocking of the two older and somewhat envious sisters:

Story so far:
Psyche was so beautiful that all the men and women in the land came to admire her
while ignoring her two older sisters.  This did not sit very well with the envious sisters,
who plotted against Psyche to undermine her popularity.

Blocking Bion the poet and Psyche's admirers.

Direct Link



The story so far:
The fame of her beauty was so great that strangers from neighboring countries came in crowds to
enjoy the sight, and looked on her with amazement, paying her that homage which is due only to
Aphrodite herself. In fact Aphrodite found her altars deserted, while men turned their devotion to
this young virgin. As she passed along, the people sang her praises, and strewed her way with
chaplets and flowers.  (source: Thomas Bulfinch http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/cupid.html)

Blocking Aphrodite's scene

Direct Link



This was the hardest one to set up so far because of her expressive way of talking.
The body language and facial expressions are not all there, but hopefully the animatic
works well so far cinematically.

A bit of a spoiler, so feel free to skip it ;]
