Cranberries

My story for storyboarding class. Depending on how the leica turns out, I may post that here next week, but for now here are the drawings I used in my pitch a couple weeks ago.



Cranberries is the heartwarming tale of a girl and her zombie, who unintentionally ended up looking kind of like Nemesis if he really let himself go.We open with the little girl standing outside a TV salesplace of sorts, watching as the newscaster warns people that the zombie scourge has put the public on red alert.

Hearing footsteps behind her, she turns around to find herself face-to-.... belt buckle with a hulking tank-of-a-zombie.

Lucky for her he's a friendly zombie! The two go off to find a park to play at somewhere.

Unfortunately, the zombie plays too rough for the little girl, and she ends of on the bad end of many unfortunate playground mishaps. She tells off the zombie and sends him away, not wanting to be his friend anymore. He leaves, alone and dejected.

The zombie turns back to look at her one last time and sees that she is about to be hit by a truck! He runs into the road and pushes her out of the way just in the nick of time!

Unfortunately, zombies are not made of tough stuff. The zombie is left as a gooey pile of organs on the pavement. The little girl cries for the loss of her friend, but the trucker shows up with an idea...

Cut back to the park later that day. The little girl os on the swingset with the zombie, wrapped up in duct tape, pushing her. Fade to black and happy ending and all that jazz.


Awww.
