So here's a little update. I work for DreamWorks now, currently at the PDI/DreamWorks facility at Redwood City. In other news I'm leaving San Francisco for LA after a tumultuous two years that have seen many highs, but just as many lows. To celebrate I'm posting this very unhappy sequence from Frankenweenie. Sparky has just been killed in a car accident, and as is the title of the scene, "Victor Grieves".
Part 2This part of the scene was largely adapted from the original short film. I used key angles and cuts from that version of the scene, only really expanding upon it to include the other kids who are more featured players than in the short. I kinda looked at it as my Gus Van Sant "Psycho" remake moment. In the finished film a lot of the action is completely reimagined, but I think it's interesting to show this version as it represents where we began.
Also, pretty much none of the "extras" were designed at the point in the production this was drawn, so a lot of the BG characters are lifted from Dean Roberts' scene from earlier in the film where we meet Mr R for the first time.
