My Little Sumo: concept art 1

We created this concept at the beginning of the project, when we were applying for funding to Screen Australia. Here is Daisy and Charley practising some sumo at their backyard, hills hoist included! In Ana's imagination, the house was located at the top of the Adelaide Hills that surround the city :)

Daisy visits Kenji

Today we'd like to share with you a fragment of the initial storyboard created for My Little Sumo. We actually ended up changing many things but the role and feel of the place and situation remain the same.

Happy creating!
