The making of 850 METERS, Ep#02 : STORYBOARD and ANIMATIC


Our second episode of the 850 METERS ‘making of’ series has just been uploaded.
The title and subject (production stage) of this episode is : STORYBOARD & ANIMATIC (with ToonBoom StoryboardPRO)
You can watch it here : EPISODE #2

It took longer than a month but it’s also much longer than initially planned (8 minutes) :wink:
We shed a light on the preproduction of our film and how we (small team, small budget) are handling this ambitious after hours project.

And you can follow our ‘quest for a short film’ on Facebook, where we post some work in progress from time to time : 850 on FACEBOOK
