After the second presentation, we received some very interesting feedback from Mike:
- Our first four shots (or three, if you want to count the playblast animatic) – from the very beginning to when the toaster begins to count down – could possibly be combined into one long shot:
We were also told that in the first two animatics that it is not very clear what is is the bread are doing in the first scene. They just appear to be wandering around doing nothing before they all come together into the ‘loaf’. Mike gave us the pretty nifty idea of having a loaf already formed, but one piece of bread (who we had named Benny), had been left behind. Benny knows that any stragglers of bread-kind will be taken by the human, so he is trying his hardest to try to get into the loaf so he has a much lower possibility of being chosen.
