    About The Circus of Dr. Lao - Animatic

    I'm working on an animatic for my animation film class final. It's based off of The Circus of Dr.Lao.

    Here's a link to some stills of it

     The story starts out with our main character Etoain, a 10 year old boy with an overactive imagination, who enters an antique shop and finds figurines of Dr.Lao and the magic serpent he captured. Etaoin starts playing make believe with the figurines, which transitions into him imagining the serpent's backstory.

        The serpent, an old, wise, creature, sails the coast of China, until Dr. Lao's ship runs over him and submerges him underwater. The serpent reaches to the surface to inspect the ship that ran him over, until he notices that the men on board are reeling in some fish. After close inspection, he notices that the fish they're reeling in is a beautiful, shining mermaid. Fascinated, The serpent swims closer, eventually hanging his head over the board of the ship. The men notice the serpent and capture him. Dr.Lao, prideful and wise, peers over the serpent, who is at this point, debilitated and submissive. The serpent wakes up in a cage and has been bitter ever since. 

    Cut back to the antique shop, Etaoin's mom calls for him and he runs off, leaving the serpent and Dr.Lao figurines behind. We then see the serpent figurine come alive and sliver over to the Dr.Lao figurine, coiling around him and snapping him in two. From there the animatic ends and fades to black.

    Disclaimer: All voice actors will be recognized in the credits of my animatic - unless you state otherwise.
