Storyboard Progress: Combat Scene for Ure Discovery
Steve is currently creating animations for ‘Ure Discovery’, an Arts Council funded project in which pupils from three schools are collaborating with the Ure Museum. The pupils created stories and storyboards from the vase collection, and Steve is creating animations based on those storyboards, which will be used in a digital museum trail.
You can see here an example of how the storyboards inform scenes from the forthcoming animations. This one comes from a spectacular combat scene on a lekanis (a shallow bowl with side handles), made on the island of Euboea around 550BCE. The teenagers’ story shows a training session getting out of hand. You can read more about the project on the Ure Discovery blog: http://blogs.reading.ac.uk/ure-discovery/ The Ure Discovery animations will be out in June
