Time Will Tell
The theme is a narrative piece regarding ‘time’. Real footage of a butterfly enters into the scene. During the butterfly flight the time of day gradually changes from daybreak to midnight. As the butterfly travels the tail end of the butterfly sprinkles sparkles of dust particles towards the ground. The particles of dust eventually land on the rooftop of a 3d model house. Inside that house shows a real child going to sleep within his or her room. Gender not yet decided. The butterfly reappears into the child bedroom and flies right past the child. As the child falls asleep the butterfly leaves the room and then the scene fades out.
The breakdown includes real footage of the butterfly, and the child falling asleep in bed. The environment will have a slow change of daybreak, sunrise, noonday, afternoon, evening and then finally to midnight. That will be the use of matte painting as well as the other elements that would be added into the environment such as the valleys, mountains, rocks, trees, bushes, and possibly a lake view. The house will be a 3d model. The mood will have a realistic feel to it.
Overall this short will include green screen, matte painting, CG model, matchmove, color correction, depth of field, rotoscoping, and etc. to show the use of digital marriage. Inspiration is based of the following clips:
