The reasoning behind making the second animatic a playblast was that we would get a better idea on how to position our scenes when it came to making our final animation.
As you can see, our playblast animatic follows our first animatic very closely (apart from a few scenes but we’ll get to that in a minute).
We purposefully stuck as close as possible to our original plans to see whether or not the cinematography translated well onto a 3-dimensional plane. In some instances, yes, it worked fine, but in others it very clearly did not. There was also an issue with other members of the team not following the rule of 180 and crossing the stage line.
