Theme is character design
The core concept is about following the two hand drawn character’s life to existence.
What’s the narrative spine of your piece?
The characters that we are making and to meet the deadline of the class.
What are your main characters? What are your plans for getting footage besides boring talking head shots?
We will be recording with cameras and having voice monologs. Both Wen and Chloe will be talking about their process and will be the “voice” of each character as it grows to it’s final design and animation.
How is conflict driving your story?
The need to get the project finished for the deadline. This would be class driven and our own personal deadlines for when the characters should be done.
What kind of change do you wish to unfold within your piece?
The characters will be changing from just a design to personalities and then a 5 second animation.
What’s the inciting incident and point of entry in your story?
The inciting incident for this project was Chloe had to do research for the documenting process in LMW1 and chose a topic that she was interested and would be easier to gather sources and materials from what she had available at the time. It was a topic based on relavancy for her and something she was going to be more involved as she progresses in her field of study.
What issues do you foresee having making your piece visually strong?
The project is mostly visual based. We’ll have more trouble covering things that are non visual such as sound.
