I started playing around with a few concept shots and trying out timing with music to plan out the scene better. I've been working on a few mood board and came up with this quick first few seconds of animatic to keep this train on its tracks.
So in order to get a good plan for my animatic to tell a compelling story I found that I really need to build out the space. These are a few screenshots of the world blocked out with some basic shapes for scale and placement. The mountain is roughly a mile above the landscape and the seven figures are at the ends of the seven roads. No lighting modeling or texturing work has been included in this. I will attempt a rough video using some images and editing to get the right timing for the final piece.
Here is some of my research and references on circular city layout
Beginning the New World
This is the beginning of our project, we are naming KAINOS for the Neon Challenge - Theme: A New World
This is a collaborative effort between me and my friends Jon and Dillon. We spent the last few days hashing out our concept, working through the backstory and discussing the best approach to take. After a few rough whiteboard scribbles and a general idea of the direction we want to go I quickly produced this concept art to get us moving in the right direction. Next up is a rough storyboard and an animatic for shot planning and timing.
We would love to hear back on what you guys think and maybe even your thoughts on what you think is the purpose of this world and its inhabitants. More clues will unravel as we work through our design... And we are very excited to see all the work everyone is doing. Unity really has the best community!
