We had a series of ideas for the first scene. After analysing these through a series of storyboards we decided on utilising either a time-lapse or the closure of the front door to start the motion.
Final Time-lapse experiment:
This worked rather well for the first scene however it was hard to create a transition between the time-lapse as the beginning and blending it into the film. After understanding this element we started to work more closely with the front door first scene.
