Animation Project – Planning

I decided to continue studying at FAVU (Brno) until the end of the year! This fact made it easier for me to choose bigger projects and I am really really excited!

I discussed with my teacher about what I wanted to do. I mentioned I wanted to do an animation and he accepted! Now I started an animation project, which will be a short-movie. My teacher will guide me throughout the process and let’s just say that I have a loooot of work to do!



In this phase I had to plan my project and research about how to do it. I took a script and creative writing class last year which made me learn a lot about writing and thinking about the story. However I did not learn about the other parts of a movie. Luckily, I found the perfect blog with all this information!

Here you have the link for it!

It is written by Inglis Thorburn, the mind behind “Minty cool, Minty cool”, a short animation series. This post helped me with my animation’s plan:

  1. Development
  2. Pre-Production
  3. Production
  4. Post-Production

I use an app, daily, to help me with all my tasks, including the personal ones. The app is called Todoist and inside I’ve put all the tasks for this project:

It looks like this now! (Above)

This really helps me see the overview of my day before I start!

I used another reference to plan my project. As you know (or should know), I made a final major project 2 years ago at Oxford Brookes University. There they gave a really complete document about what I had to do for my project. I took this document, made some changes and came up with a material list I want to have by the end of the project and a weekly plan for this first part of the project. Here they are:



Right now I am on schedule but we’ll see how long it lasts….

Stay tuned! Next post will be about my animation’s story!
