Proposal: Nouns! An Animatic

Proposal: Nouns! An Animatic


PPT Studios is asking for Ξ111 to make three 1-minute animatics to help show the tone and flavor of the Nouns! An Animated Series and what it could be.


Over the course of 3 months, PPT Studios will write and develop three 1 minute animatics. These will be an effective tool for better understanding the tone of Nouns! An Animated series. During this time it will be the sole focus of PPT Studios.


An animatic is a preliminary version of a movie, animated short, or episode, produced by shooting successive sections of a storyboard and adding a soundtrack.

EXAMPLE Animatic From Adventure Time:

An animatic is just one of the many steps of creating an episode of animation.

These are the basic steps we use at PPT Studios:

  • Pitchbook and Story Bible
  • Writing and Storyboards
  • Animatic and Rough Audio
  • Animation and Final Edits

EXAMPLE Pitchbook From Adventure Time:

EXAMPLE Storyboard From Adventure Time:

EXAMPLE Animated Pilot From Adventure Time:

So again, WTF is an animatic?

Animatics are used to plan an animation and use low-resolution images to convey timing, rather than the look and feel of the final piece. An animatic is the pre-cursor to the final animation and is a key part of the planning process.

Again we are proposing creating an animatic for this proposal.

We are creating the animatics in 4 phases per short.

  • Scripting
  • Storyboarding
  • Scratch Track Audio
  • Editing
