Design Externality Journal: Ethel Red

Online design journal for the Bean project creating an animation for their character, Ethel Red.


I tried doing a few pages for a storyboard and got a few pages in but I found it too limiting.

Knowing that the animation really relied on rhythm and action just drawing the pages in paper was not helping me in figuring out the beats in my head. Additionally, since I knew I was working on this project on my own, I should do the animation in a way that would work for me. So in lieu, I decided to go straight into the animatic.

Using the animatic I was able to plan out the timing and how the action will be cut from scene to scene
