Storyboards made for each Scene.
Many of the backgrounds used in the show were animated, created with Procreate, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe After Effects.
Friendship and Everybody Shared Background
Since the production was moved to being produced virtually on Zoom, almost all of the scenes included shared backgrounds between multiple actors. These allowed for the characters to appear to exist in the same space, while the actors could be in their own homes.
Little Girl Background
Stuff and Everybody Shared Background
Death and God Shared Background
Kinship, Everybody, and Cousin Shared Background
In order to achieve the unique placement of the Zoom video boxes pictured in the storyboard below, we used a combination of Zoom (to record the actors), OBS (to configure the video boxes and backgrounds), and Youtube (to livestream the show each night.)
NOTE: Each performance was done live!
Usher 1 and Usher 2 Shared Backgrounds with the Somebodies surrounding them.
Mind, Beauty, Senses, and Strength Backgrounds
