My First “Movie” (Updated)

My work space for the past 7 months

Last week I posted about completing a 15:15 minute animatic (i.e., I had put drawings together into something like a movie). When I showed the animatic to my girlfriend, I realized I needed to add narration. The animatic is basically an extended trailer, so the story jumps around a bit.

So, I unpublished that post, and I spent last week putting narration to the animatic. It’s now 28:45. But I think it’s better because the story might be clearer.

Getting a feature-length movie off the ground is difficult (making this animatic is meant to be a step towards making the feature version of this short). But whatever happens, I loved the experience of making this animatic. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot.

(In case you’re curious, I wrote about what I learned on my blog about the movie:

In any event, even though the animatic is now 28:15 minutes long to watch, it took me about 7 months to make it. Phew. But I’m excited.

I’ve had the desire to get this feature off the ground for a decade now (I wrote the first draft back in 2013, and it’s now 2023). I’m excited to have taken what feels like a real step in that direction. If you’d like to check it out, here’s the animatic.

I'm excited to share a few projects: blogging about my passions at; about a book my Dad wrote before he passed at; and a movie I'm making at
