My (incomplete) scene from Rad Sechrist's class

Hey guys!
Here's part of the scene I did for Rad Sechrist's storyboarding class. At the time I assembled these pages (I applied to Dreamworks) I had not finished the scene. I'll post the rest when I assemble the pages.

A side note, I've been assured that the scene reads and makes sense when each panel is viewed full screen, but I'm worried that some of the subtleties that hold it together will be lost at this size, so please look at the pages as big as possible.

So, here's some setup, since my scene is scene 04.

The project is called "The Haunting of Science Falls." The story is about Max, who has been raised believing that science can explain all, and that there is nothing more important that advancement of technology. His journey forces him to reconsider these teachings and to find the value in all life.

He lives in a stuck up, science oriented town that's just about reached their energy producing capacity and must find a new power source. Max is the son of the head-hancho of the scientific community, and he very much wants to live up to that name.

The town denies anything and everything that can't be explained by science, but early on we meet a group of curious ghosts from a town deep in the forest.

In this scene Max is working late in to the night, trying to figure out why his power-source machine doesnt work.

From here, Max basically tries to capture the ghost, and chases her around the room. She escapes from the room by bursting out the window, but she leaves behind some ectoplasm. When it's discovered, it sends the plot hurling forward.

I hope you enjoyed, and dont hesitate to give me feedback!
