Makoto Shinkai is a well known name throughout the animation industry. For several years now the director has been staging his visions, with the help of an exceptional staff. By now the titles of him like 5cm per second, The garden of words and many others are on everyone’s lips. But the most famous remains Your Name.
Your Name is a film that manages to excite even years later and with various visions behind it. The director / screenwriter managed to do a perfect job, captivating the emotion of the entire world audience, without borders. Obviously, before reaching this result, it took a lot of work, with the staff who worked hard on every scene to make it perfect on a visual level, between direction and animations.
But did you know what Your Name was like before it was animated? On Reddit, user 1954isthebest shared a video that shows scene by scene all the changes between storyboards, which are naturally presented in a sketchy fashion, with few colors and directions for the rest of the staff, and the complete product.
Surely Makoto Shinkai’s next film will also undergo this transformation, moving from sketchy storyboards to full scenes.
