Animatic Dialog Recording
An animatic is a movie of the storyboards. This is used for timing our motion picture. It also helps us judge if the movie will be a success. To create an animatic, the storyboard, the film score, the dialog and the sound effects are put into an editing program to create a movie which we can show to investors. Later, when we record the voices for the animated version of this motion picture, the actors will watch the animatic to help understand the action and the timing of the dialog.
