It is hard for me to post on the internet. Even harder to post my own work and work in progress. It is not a safe space for me, it brings back a lot of insecurity and fear. Fear of the judgment and fear of the failure, of the incomplete. So most of the time I try to avoid it.
This semester it is even harder for me because I am doing something I never tried before. I am doing an adaptation of a story and storyboarding it. It feels too ambitious, too big, and there is so much so much that I don’t know about this. But it has been so amazing to learn, and as time goes by, I try to make peace with all the thing I just don’t know yet.
Here are some of the drawings I did in Storyboard Pro:
Tomorrow it will be my second critique, and my focus will be mainly on the manuscript that I’ve sent through email. This story is very important to me, now more than ever for everything that is happening in Brazil.
Here are some questions that I would love if you guys could answer:
- Do you like the story? Do you empathize with the characters?
- what do you think about the dialogues? In your opinion they are compatible with the age of the characters?
- How do you feel about the ending?
These are the basic questions, and I look forward to hear what you all have to say, even if it is not related to the questions above.
Ah, bonus question: What do you think about the narrator?
See you tomorrow!
