Final Major Project Film idea

Hi Guys,

I have been thinking of ideas for a short film for my final major project. I came up with an idea that is kind of based on the story from Pixar's "One Man Band", which can be seen below:

Pixar - One Man Band from Ricardo Pereira on Vimeo.

The premise of my short idea is about a shy, young man at his final year prom and is working up the courage to speak to a person he has a crush on for some time. However, 2 girls fight over the affection of the protagonist, blocking him from his goal. Below are rough thumbs of the story:

I then developed these into working storyboards:

Pipeline final render and beginning of Major Project

Hi Everybody.

So we handed in the E4 sting for our pipeline project this week and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out considering the short length of the project. I feel from this project I have been able to develop my directorial and rigging skills which will be a great help for my Final Major project, preproduction of which begins this week, however, I am still brainstorming ideas for the final major, but I think I will try to direct my own short, animate for that short and also rig a character.
