The animatic was an extremely useful tool in pre-production as it was the first time we saw our idea in video form. Overlaying the music and sound effects over the pictures gave us a rough idea of what our sequence would look like. We were glad to see that the sound effects worked well for example the non-digetic sound of typing created a tense atmosphere. however some aspects of the animatic weren't as successful. Some parts of the music simply did not work with the pictures. The lengths of some shots were over-estimated and created an awkward atmosphere. We were able to fix this instantly by simply shortening the shot. However in doing this our sequence fell short and did not fit the time frame. This had to be fixed by making other shots longer.
