Newt : the music

I think that this piece of music from Steamboy fits perfectly with the tone I want the story to have. Fun, colorful, lighthearted.

Skip to 0:57, take a look at the amazing artwork and imagine the characters walking and swimming gently through the leaves, the grass and the streams.

Tumblr : Story Advice

storyboard panel from 'Up' (2009 - Pixar Animation Studios)

Just started a Tumblr which I'll use to post advice on storytelling, filmmaking, writing and storyboarding - quotes, videos, pictures, links that I gathered over the years.

I put a link to it in the sidebar.

Newt : an introduction

Taking over Pixar's cancelled project, Newt.

I've been considering working on this for several months now, and decided to seriously give it a go. 
Man, there's so much potential...

Right now I'm playing around with ideas, writing, researching and getting inspired. Tons, tons of fun.
Trying to figure out character acts, relationships, plot points, themes, settings, narrative progression, conflicts, etc. These things get me fired up !!

I'm thinking of developing the main beats of a feature length story, then boarding a couple of sequences that I find myself the most attracted to.

Be sure to hear more on this project in the future !

For now, here are some development pages. Enjoy.
