This animatic was done for my Senior Thesis.

Quasi based in history. At the very least I did enough research to know that things like little girls in army camps are entirely plausible. XD



It's not everything I wanted as a lot of opinions were a part of it aside from my own view of what it should be, but that is what the entertainment industry is. :) I did learn quite a bit though, and if it didn't show in this, hopefully it will in future projects.


If you want to see some individual frames from it, I posted a bunch on my tumblr: [link]

Music is from Killer Tracks and sound is from the university's sound libraries, both of which I have the rights to. I'll work on getting the correct info for those up soon. And sorry for the long intro. There used to be titles there, but I didn't want real names all over the internet.

It's funny you mention that, for a while the piece explored some different parts of the story and the union hat was an issue like that. :)

Thank you so much for the compliment and comment too!

Augh. This made me want to cry at the end. Poor man. Despite this being rough and an animatic, it is very nicely done, and tells the story very well.

Not a problem. It's very rare for an animation/animatic to get me choked up in such a manner.

Okay, I'm FINALLY commenting on this like I've been meaning to for ages. This is so sweet! I bet you're super glad to be done with it, haha.
And you might want to check the info in the deviation. It's acting like the music was done by someone named "killer" and someone named "tracks"?

It appears that's gone because it took me so long to reply they changed the system, but thanks for pointing that out!

@05:12That little girl is so precious. This was really touching. The setup was fantastic with the little girl imagining things to be better than they were. REALLY good writing / storyline. It made me cry, which is a very high compliment! If you can move someone to tears, you know you did your job right!=(

@05:12Aw, thank you so much, that means a lot to hear from you. The writing came from talking to a lot of people about what would be best. I still feel like I could improve, but I think that is always how these things are. I'm glad to hear it was touching. That's always hard to tell when one has been creating something for over a year, the initial impact things can make becomes so easily lost.

Thanks again!
