The step between storyboard and full animation
The First Story
This is an animatic of the first Freddy Button's book 'Freddy Buttons and the Little Lost Hen' written by Fiona Dillon, illustrated by Derry Dillon.
The video was created to demonstrate how the books could be animated without the need to finance an expensive pilot animation.
Using a combination of both adult and children's voice talent, some movement in the illustrations, and sound effects to create the scene, the animatic has proved successful in selling the concept to a major studio.
