I had to redesign Roberta Plank for both practical and stylised way.  First practica reasons, I had to shorten Roberta's hair, I realised how much it'll get in the way and take up space.  Second. Roberta's feet design, I made them tip-toed, like in Cartoon Network "Powerpuff Girls", for her to look more rounder and it will easier to make her skip around with feet like that.
 
 
I just met up with Cassie,  Jack (from year 1) and Nins.  They are still interested in the project, which is still a good sign! 8) Thankfully they all have drawing tablets and programs that will be needed to be used for "Fy Chwaer".  I gave them all different jobs too.  Cassie is animating doing a short sequence of Emileena Plank scooping sugar off a spoon, hopefully done in 2 weeks!  Jack is animating the two sisters fighting over a cake, hopefully done in 3 weeks! And Nins is doing a long background pan of the kitchen.

 
 
This is almost the final animatic!  just a few tweaks, like having Emileena in it more!
 
 
Here's my final(ish) storyboard
 
 
Here's a test of Emileena Plank in the eefnvironment  my film.  I am going for a "Dexter's Laboratory" look, with the  90s grain.... although I think I should make it look more 70s to be honest!
 
 
These backgrounds are infulenced by UPA animation and Dexter's Lab backgrounds, at the momentI want to gift the film a film grainy feel!
 
 
An episode of Dexter's Lab, called the Muffin King...  Sounds familiar???
 
 
Yeeeeeaaaahhhh... I do not think my presentation when very well.  Since we were told that we were not doing one, I was not prepared.

The tutors told me that it they could not remember my last animatic, which was not a good sign, the music was too distracting and they did not like the new style I was going for.
 
 
At last I think I am near to finished with my Preproduction stuff.
I DO NOT OWN  THE MUSIC, THE MUSIC IS CALLED "HAPPY FEET" BY PAUL WHITEMAN, IN THE 1940s 8/.  THIS IS JUST THE SCRATCH MUSIC, I WILL MOST PROBABLY WOULD NOT USE IT IN MY FINAL PIECE!

..... With that out of they way, I was surprised how quick I made this, after spending couple of weeks pondering what changes I should do.  In the end result, this film is like I wanted a quirky old fashion cartoon (but hopefully animated better than Saturday cartoon).  Also a interesting look came up while I made it, to save time I just coloured the sisters in one colour, and this really look nice!  I am considering to have my film coloured like this in the film!
 
 
I think I shall go back to my original idea and have Emileena to bake a cake, but this time I'll make it like a its a chemical formula in a cook book.  She can use tradition chemistry equipment to bake the cake and in the cook book there is chemical symbols and diagrams of making a Madeira cake.


It has been fun looking at all the symbols and chemical names of the ingredients of a cake!

Also it can be a bit more visually symbolic, Emileena can be looking at a blank rectangle frame, needing a picture and Roberta is licking a round empty plate, wanting food.  And at the end, Emileena has been give a picture for her frame on a round doily and Roberta is given a square cake to eat (and share!).  This show that the sisters need each other and there oppersite skills to be
