storyboard- pages 6-7


As Magnus gets ready for bed his Grandpa climbs the stairs to the top of the lighthouse and switches on the light...self explanatory really. I want to capture a little of the classic James Whale Frankenstein in Grandpa switching on the light so imagine blue sparks and bolts of electricity creating an eerie glow until the bulb is fully lit.

This is coming along beautifully. I love your compositions and how you seem to have thought everything out really well. I especially enjoy that light bulb. The book is going to be lovely when it's all done.

Again, the pages are looking really good. The layout and detail in 6&7 is superb!

Are you going to produce all the pages to a fully finished level or is this going to be a book-dummy with a few pages fully polished and the rest just in rougher stages?

Hi Matt,

The pages look great! Even though they're black and white, you can almost see the colour.

There is one thing I'm not sure about, are the blocks of text too much for the littluns? Are you planning to streamline the words at all? Maybe the FIZZES and BUZZES could be moved to around the lightbulb. "They" say 'Show don't tell'.

But, it's a small thing, really I think all the pages are looking Luursh, as the they say in Bristle.
