It takes extremely precise timing to animate a character within a relatively short time frame of around eight weeks. First of all, the music and sound layers – on which everything else is based on – have to be defined. An ‘animatic’, a type of slide show with music and sounds, is then cut from individual storyboard images so that an initial sense of the frame changes and movement speeds can be developed. In the next stage, the animatic is transferred to 3D objects whose initial movements are extremely rough and the camera movements are planned. This is followed by the animation of details, the lighting and the finish. The following video shows all of the stages in parallel: storyboard, animatic, final video.
