production page three
Dialogue exposure sheet from "Lily and Jim". Don animated his lip synches to the film phonetically, based on Brian's sound breakdown (seen vertically, amid Don's notes). Note Jim referred to as "Guy." The film title - and the naming of the characters - wasn't decided on until the film was nearly finished.
Another exposure sheet from "Lily", this one filled with camera/animation notes. Also note the then-working title, "Small Talk."
A page of early "Lily" script riddled with Don's animation notes, outlining the direction of each character action, line by line - every blink, fidget, pose, etc.
