Fiction Films works with clients and agencies on projects and pitches to develop new ideas or refine existing ones. Ideas emerge as sparks, which must be nurtured if they are to achieve their full potential. We start with the concept, and if you like, we develop it further into a treatment and a script, which we visualize with styleframes, a storyboard, animatics and/or ripomatics. We can support you in all areas of the creation and ideation phase of a film project.
Beyond the storyboard, at this satge you get the best look and feel for what your film will be like. We create mood movies, called Ripomatics, edited from scenes in existing films and commercials, that convey how your film will be.
For animated films or high-end post-production, we also create animatics to give a better idea of how the motion and timing works. The entire film can be visualized with 3D animation. This way a director, cameraman or VFX supervisor can experiment with various film design options such as camera positioning, movement and lighting. Also, music, sound effects, and narration can be added to test how image and sound work together. So, as a client, film production and you can work out lots of shooting/animation-related issues up front and reduce problems in advance. An animatic helps focus on the essentials, avoid unnecessary scenes, plan better to make shooting and/or post-production more efficient. So you don’t waste time or money.
