An animatic is like an animated storyboard, mostly used to help filmmakers envision the pacing of a scene before loading up the camera and getting the actors together. It can also be a great way to pitch a movie, because you’re not just describing it to the evil Hollywood exec, but you can also show them just how it would look like.
Check out this pitch for a Halloween movie, done by Federico D’Alessandro, the head Storyboard Artist and Animatics Supervisor over at Marvel Studios.
This looks so good, I’d watch an entire movie done in this style! Based on this animatic, would you let this guy direct the next film?
Check out some of the other drawings for the pitch.
