Group Project - Animatic

Our storyboard for our group project has developed now. The story runs much more fluidly and we being the story outside The Sloop Inn in St Ives. From there the pirate walks in, scares a local and heads to the bar. From the bar he orders a pint and chips from the Barmaid (Inspired by Betty Stoggs) He heads outside. Seagulls are flying around, with a one  waiting on some bunting just outside. He notices the pirate's food and calls in reinforcements. Just as the pirate picks up a chip, a seagull swoops down to snatch it. The pirate notices this and looks up. Several seagulls now head towards him, causing him to fall face forward into his food. He runs back to his ship, a seagull takes a chainsaw and cuts into his wooden leg causing him to slip and fall down into his ship. He runs aboard, there he stands off a seagulls. He shoots it with his pistol. Using the style of the old cartoons, only a hole is visible in the seagull. He grabs his cannon and begins firing. One small seagull heads away from the crowd as a larger seagull divebombs onto the Pirate. From there a mass of seagulls begin to form around the pirate. The smaller seagull sits and watches whilst he begins to eat the Pirate's chips. The pirate eventually shoos all the seagulls off, only to see St Ives up in flames from his cannon balls. The setting ends with the seagull sat merrily on the edge of his boat eating his chips whilst the Pirate screams "Nooo".

We've been working on animatics, so far we've done two drafts and currently working on the final version;
First draft:

Second draft:

We've made some changes, after a tutorial from Georg. The local was the wrong way round, so we've changed that. He also gave us the idea to begin it from the outside of The Sloop.
We've begun sound as well, soon this will be added. I recorded some non-diegetic background sound of the seagulls in Falmouth along with the sea. So far it's going quite well.
