Kafka on the Shore
Storyboard + Animatic
This project challenged me to create a complete storyboard and stylized animatic, based on a book of my choosing. I chose Kafka on the Shore by my favorite author Haruki Murakami, a trippy and philosophical murder mystery novel.
When it came to styling and timing, I went for frame by frame animation, at a rate of 8 fps, to achieve an anime like effect, and opted for a limited color palette to set the mood.
Student project for Holon Institute of Technology under the mentorship of Prof. Tamir Shefer.
