rough potential stills

The below still is a sketched out 'scene' that contains 9 Beatles references in it that fans are likely to spot and relate to. The idea is that that camera will pan through the scene focussing on the Beatles related elements. This will become apparent in the full storyboard of the opening sequence.

Some rough potential still ideas for a segment of the sequence involving a reference to the Beatles song 'Strawberry Fields Forever'.

experimentation with audio in after effects

Using sound bytes available to us in our After Effects Session and adding The Beatles track 'Birthday' to match the theme of celebration (and the project). Also this was a good opportunity to muck about with some basic kinetic type.

union jack crossover idea

storyboard ideas

Some varied storyboard ideas examining how Beatles related things can be animated:

Beatles Locations

This storyboard idea explores the idea of forward camera movement through famous Beatle-related locations. Camera movement works synonymously with the idea of progression which is key to the Beatles ad throughout their musical career, their musical style progressed dramatically. If the camera progresses through buildings in a chronological order, a nice emphasis can be put on the band's progression.

This particular sequence flows through The Cavern Club in Liverpool, The Indra club in Hamburg, Abbey Road recording studios in London and Apple Recording studios on Savile Row in London which are all landmarks where the Beatles have made music.

Beatles Songs

This set of ideas focusses on animation particular Beatles songs. The notion is that they would be used as a reference to The Beatles in the opening sequence animation, and that they could be potentially used as ident features. The particular songs that needed to be used in ideas have to have strong visual overtones as well as the potential to be animated. The track name being animated is above each 4 slide mini storyboard.
