For all of those unfamiliar with animatics, they are pre-visualization tools to help plan out the camera angles, shot lengths, and composition of the film. As you can see, there is absolutely nothing special or aesthetically pleasing, but that is not the point during this stage.
Usually, the artist will cut up the storyboards they have drawn for the story and then animate them, just as I have done.
It is more of a process for the creator(s) of the animation to plan what needs are required for the film (shot length, camera angles, character placement, and even sound effects). I am talking over the video to explain what is going on in further detail, so the music is a bit drowned out, but you can get the idea. I mean, that's the point.
Enjoy and stay tuned for the updates on my progress toward the full animation! Comments and critiques are most welcome.
