Buckwheat Production Art

"Buckwheat" is the title of my animated feature and it's about a guy who breaks his dog out of the pound with the help of some international pet smugglers. I spent the summer writing and revising the screenplay and have since begun some rough character sketches and storyboarding. I will post more of these as things progress.

The tone is a Walt Disney film (talking animals and so forth) with a generous dose of gangster iconography. There is a strong influence of the French gangster movies of the 60's and 70's directed by Jean-Pierre Melville. I want to produce something that is accessible to audiences of all ages while also retaining the slightest bit of an edge. Below are some initial character and scene sketches.
