I will be posting storyboards from the newly released Moana in the near future. For now this quick sketch of Maui will have to do.

Nick Goes Savage (Zootopia Outtakes)

In this version of the movie, Nick was the owner-proprietor of an underground night club exclusively for predators called "Wild Times". In this snippet from a larger sequence, Nick is in his office looking out at the club-goers below, unaware that a sinister White Wolf is sitting behind him in a dark corner. The wolf shoots Nick with a hypodermic dart that cause him to "go savage"and escapes. In the balance of the sequence a savage Nick threatens everyone in the night club and gets arrested. A classic frame-up.

For inspiration I watched Fredrick March's portrayal of Dr. Jekyll transforming into Hyde. The idea that the serums gradually takes effect was something new to the scene I wanted to explore.

I didn't bother cleaning it all up as I only pitched it once, before someone else took over the sequence and I moved on to the next thing.
