storyboarding: initial thoughts

"Leonardo" went through about three different periods of boarding. The first, dipicted here, consisted of thumbnailing out my first ideas. Just getting something down and out of my head. I did this in my notebook, editing with post-it notes. They are quite a jumble. Looking at them years later even I had trouble figuring out what the hell I meant with all those arrows.

Shown here is an idea for opening the short.
Leo rides his bicycle to a birdseller - Releases a bird the birdseller is trying to sell him, much to the sellers surprise - After paying for the bird Leo chases after it to study it. Enjoy.
