Conveying a story is the main aim when creating a storyboard for stop-motion animation. For Robinsons, the simplicity of the concept meant that the main concern was the timing of each action.
We created the animatic for this series of social films using the storyboard and a voice over recording to test the pace and timings. This was then used by our animation team to plan the stop-frame process.
Working with water in stop-frame animation is always difficult. It can be tricky to make movements look natural, as liquid has a mind of its own!
