HORN OF THE SUN
This is my film project submission, Its a short film about how the Narwhal ,often called the unicorn of the sea got his horn
I had heard the story as a child about how the unicorn got left behind during the great flood, He missed Noah's Ark, and jumped into the sea and was never seen again
So I thought it makes sense within the realm of fantasy that the Unicorn became the Narwhal under the sea
So its a short animated film involving death and rebirth which was my 1st idea for a concept when this project was announced.
This Video is my rough visualization of the first two acts, whilst it is a work in progress I'm happy enough with it, I wanted to tell a very visual atmospheric tale and I believe Ive been somewhat successful in showing you the possibility's of what this film could be,also please note the digital animation is taken from manimation test online, my intention is to show you how this film can be made, on some levels it appears complex but having spent allot of time researching I believe its a very doable film and will only improve over the coming weeks please look below to see the storyboard and script
THE FOLLOWING IS THE STORYBOARD AND SCRIPT COMBINED
The art work and shots are a mixture of live action, photoshop, referenced art work and animation from other sources ,also the final act of the film is as yet unconceptualized
It is the time of the great flood, the animals all in two's head into the ark for refuge
One animal, the last Unicorn is late, galloping across the land he tries to get to the ark in time.
He reaches the ocean, He’s on top of a cliff, he’s to late the ark has left, off in the distance it rides the waves, the unicorn rears up on its hind legs in anger and despair. He looks down, to the waves below and looks back at the ark ,his face turns from fear to determination, he backs up preparing himself, after a moment of anticipation, he gallops towards the cliffs edge, and dives into the raging sea
