Short Film Storyboard Exploration

The main character, a young Australian cowboy armed with a pair of boomerangs instead of six-shooters, was an idea created by my buddy, Les Ulmer. We decided to take this character and expand it into a story, which is outlined in the boards below.

Optimism Title Animations
