The amount of work put into these Marvel animatics is pretty nuts.
SOME OF THESE AREN’T EVEN ANIMATICS THEY’RE FREAKING PENCIL TESTS
These kinds of ‘boards’ to stage movies are getting more and more popular and can I just
say how frightening that is I mean look at all the work these take??? How fucking GREAT these are??? SERIOUSLY this is what I’m gonna have to compete with????????
I kind of wonder if these are just done for the sake of putting on a show in the special features or showing to people at cons, because some of these are such a completely unnecessary amount of work to do in an animatic. Like, especially for live action, the actor is there to do the acting, that’s what they were hired for and if it’s animated that’s the animator’s job. I an understand wanting to clearly indicate a motion, but a lot of this is beyond that. Like, actors know how to walk, animating a run in an animatic is a time sink that I can’t see benefiting anyone actually making the movie, and is going to make cut or reworked scenes cost exponentially more than they would have as board panels.
'Course, I can't say for sure, I don't work for Marvel, they have money to burn that I'm not used to seeing. This just feels very much like projects I've worked on where we had to add a lot of extra zazz to the boards so they would impress people who aren't familiar with what boards are actually used for.
Bravisimo~ I’m still trying to convince my teacher that. I’m doing one last democratic action to try and convince him. Maybe he’ll look at text better than he listened to my words.
Thank you~ I just want to finish it and this drama to be over.
US army doctor returns arm to Vietnamese soldier fifty years after he took it as a souvenir.
there are so many intersecting levels of fucked up here
That has to be the most forgiving man in history.
Here is the full story and not the sensationalized version: Nguyen Quang Hung was shot in the arm, taken in by American forces (different from the one who shot him) and Sam Axelrad saved his life by amputating the infected arm. His colleagues took the bones from the amputated arm and made them into the thing you see in the picture to remind Axelrad of a good deed done.
Years later, Axelrad finds the bones in his closet and wanted to reunite them with the original owner. So he goes over to Vietnam and goes on a country-wide search for Hung, not even knowing if Hung was still alive. His story gets picked up by a major newspaper and long story short Axelrad was able to return the bones to Hung and the two shared war stories. (x)
Hung has nothing to forgive Axelrad for: he did nothing wrong and in fact saved Hung’s life. The bone thing is odd, definitely, but considering that most amputated limbs end up incinerated this entire story works out in Hung’s favor.
This isn’t sensational or show how awful the American soldiers were. It is kinda a sweet story.
There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.
