How to Let Your Hero Beat Your Villain – Villain’s Tragic Flaw.


Planning, Planning. Making a cartoon requires A LOT of it. Here’s some of my notes (excuse for the messiness it is only my first draft – no edits):

Scene 1
Farnham is looking through dumpster of movie producing company. Finds better hat. Bo crashes gets scared off by some cats. He runs and crashes into wall or something. and gets momentarily knocked out Farnham spots Bo (same alley) pretends to be the nice guy. Pretends he can help bo but real intention is to report him to the city to get recognized and get money. But then when he gets home and looks around he realizes that he can use Bo in his movies and make a bigger fortune.
Takes him home makes him comfy, makes him believe that he is going to help. Doesn’t get along with granny’s
dog so granny didn’t like bo and told him to stop playing with toys and get a life.  after getting bo on his side, he tricks bo into making movies.
Then Bo gets separated from the guy
(Abigail’s mom tells abby to say thank you) Bo meets Abigails as she chases her balloon (with icecream) and he runs away to find his spaceship. They collide. At first she stares at him and he stares back

Update!


If you read my previous posts you know that I decided to make a movie with Bo. However I changed my mind and decided to make a series instead. I drew sketches of the new characters but I’m not gonna post it because it will not look that good (and you may know that if you’ve see sketch of Abigail). I’m actually debating still if I should start working before or after Anime Studio 8 is realeased, I’m not sure yet. I’m still experiencing with Anime Studio 7 with the time I have (not a lot hehe). I hope I get something done by the end of summer though. I guess we’ll have to see. Bye! Come back again!

The story of Bo so far


Bo was out playing with his childhood friend (name) jumping from astroid to astroid. Everything was going great, but then creature slipped because he was trying to show off. When he fell he was pulled by earth’s gravitational pull but somehow (how) survived the fall. He ends up on a deserted street. He wonders around a bit looking around. Then as he turns a corner he sees some angry cats. They start chasing him, so he starts running. But he turned on a not a through street and was trapped. Luckily a girl (name) was walking at that time back from school. (she usually doesn’t go this way but wanted to get home early and it was a shorter way). At first she thought what a strange looking toy and wanted to continue but  then creature looked so scared as the cats started closing in on him that she knew he was alive. At that moment all she wanted to do was to save him. She scared the cats away looked at the creature thinking “What is this thing? Is it a rabbit? But rabbits are not blue.” She took it home anyway hiding it from her family. Creature starts really liking the girl. He always wants to spend time with her. But one day he started looking at pictures of space and started to get home sick. He thought about his childhood friend and his parents. He started crying a bit. Then he did different things to try to go back home. It sually involved him running away. Girl always found him except one time when his parents (who are like the king and queen) found him first and took him away. Creature was happy but a bit sad to leave. He was going to miss the girl and all the food. One day on his home planet, he heard his mom and dad talk about destroying planet earth because creature was exposed. Creature didn’t want that. He had to warn the girl. So he took a spaceship and rode to earth. Girl was happy to see him but creature was panicing. Since he didn’t know how to talk, he had to assemble different items to show what he meant. Girl understood and said what can we do? Creature thought of a plan and called his childhood friend. And then I don’t know what should happen so you tell me!

P.S help fill in the blanks. Even one would be great help!
