I then redesigned the George character, as I knew the original wasnt very good. I came up with something that I think goes very well with the semi serious, but mostly funny idea i have in my head. After that I did some quick storyboards, and on to the artsy stuff.
If i could change anything about this project, the main thing is I would animate it traditionally, since that is what im most comfortable with, and then import the files into illustrator for color. I would definitely have someone else do the backgrounds for me, cuz ill be honest, im not very good at that stuff. Id also try and consult with someone about overall colors, for this film that i turned in, i just kinda was throwing "whatever" colors in it. Another thing I would change, is i would go back and animate all the little things, for instance when he crashes on the boats, i want them to go into the water, and break and stuff. I also want to put other sailors on those boats, along with water splashes when the water is disturbed.
All in all, id say what i turned in can for now be considered a film, but later it will become a rough animatic for what i really want it to look like, and you know what, im cool with that, because now im excited for a film, which has never happened for me.

ok so im not sure what happened, but imagine, that after george stops moving in the first shot, that it cuts to the third shot, with no pause in the beginning, and then after that comes back to this first shot, where he will jump off of this snowy bank, leading into what is now the second shot(supposed to be the third one), where he will be jumping from boat to boat.

So good ol' George jumps into frame, then he begins to roar like a lion, where it will then cut to the next scene. unfortunately i ripped the wrong part of the file that my lion roar is on, so ill have to redo it for next time. the roar is coming from mgm lion himself.

I mean two sets of testicles, so divine.
On a horse made of crystal, he patrolled the land,
With a mason ring and schnauzer in his perfect hand
Had a pocket full of horses, fucked the shit out of bears.
Threw a knife into Heaven, and could kill with a stare.
He made love like an eagle falling out of the sky.
Killed his sensei in a duel and never said why.

George Washington crossing the Delaware Short
By Joshua Graul
EXT. DELAWARE RIVER (WINTER) – DAY
GEORGE crashes into the frame, splashing snow in several directions
(Roars like a wild man)
GEORGE jumps down the snowy bank toward the DELEWARE RIVER.
EXT. DELAWARE RIVER (WINTER) – DAY
GEORGE jumps from boat to boat along the DELAWARE until he reaches the front boat, which resembles, almost exactly, the boat from Emanuel Leutze’s painting from 1851, where everything will slow down in an extreme slowmo sequence. When GEORGE eases into the classic pose, everything will speed back up, catapulting everyone else in the boat into the frigid water, while GEORGE, continues offscreen to the other side of the riverbank.
EXT. DELAWARE RIVER, THE OTHER SIDE (WINTER) – DAY
GEORGE is jumping extremely high, lost in the sun, when he suddenly comes crashing down onto land. He explodes up ripping his shirt off exposing his chest hair, which is in the shape of an eagle.
Beeeeennnnneeeeeeeeeeet (Bennett, his bird/sidekick)
not really sure how do post this in the format thats in the pdf, but here it is nonetheless.

while im at it, i might as well throw up the dialogue i did for this class too, which is 2d character.
dont mind that second character, i had to put it in to meet the assignment requirements. my plan is to go in and redo that part, and add a third shot at the end on top of actually finishing this!

I also have no idea what the story will be about yet, however i do know that in one scene, George will be crossing the Delaware. In the scene, he will be jumping from boat to boat, destroying every single one of his comrades. When we get to that classic scene, painted by Emanuel Leutze, there will be freeze frame, with a fairly long pause, before that boat gets destroyed.
So maybe that isnt the most textbook premise, but its all i got, cut me some slack.

....BLOG. Alright so I've just been shown what is expected of me in my digital cell animation class. Throughout the quarter it looks like we are supposed to create some sort of short film using either digital pro, or flash. It seems as though there may be some controversy on which program we may be using.
Already I think I have a sweet idea. George Washington. You really cant go wrong with the first president. Yeah, George Washington. Maybe I'll have him fight Abraham. TBD.
