Abstract:


    This sketch presents how the 3D Layout Department at Blue Sky Studios dealt with the production pipeline issues of transforming their first feature film Ice Age from sequences of hand-drawn storyboards into blocked out, ready-to-animate scenes in 3D for the Animation Department. To achieve this, custom tools were developed to automate sequence set-up and distribution of shots, in order to minimize the artists’ concern with data management and maximize the creative time available to accommodate revisions in the story.
