Workbook Series #2: Mulan Prologue (1st Version)
Welcome again to my workbook series. Here is the first version workbook that I did for the Mulan prologue that never made it into the big screen. One of the elements I like about this version is the puppetry at the beginning. I remember seeing the tests made for this in CG and they looked amazingly beautiful. I was a bit disappointed when I was informed that the whole sequence has to be revised. The puppetry is an effective intro to the richness of the Chinese culture. But Hans did a brilliant move in adding an equally powerful intro on the second version (Theatrical version. See Workbook Series#1) -- the Chinese brush painting. Dean DuBlois, who was my director for Lilo & Stitch, was the story artist for both versions. Enjoy.
