Final Year Project : Script Draft 04.

Final Year Project : Script Draft 03

I finished draft 03 of the script after my tutorial on friday, and now I'm really thinking there's something missing from this story. I've been having feedback from a few different voices and now I've noticed there's not so much 'me' in my story. So I will post this version up and get to work on the next draft where I shall try and inject some of my own thoughts back in.

Here I've been sketching out some character designs but none of them scream out yet. There's another factor to incorporate in my character designs now after watching the extras on Paranorman where the lead puppet maker explains that thinner character puppets are a lot more flexible to animate with, as a lot of rounded flesh is quite difficult to manoeuvre. This was a good little nugget of advice so I shall use it.

Final Year Project : Idea / Script Draft 02

I spoke to Phil about the script, and the story changed a bit. It is now a bit more heart-wrenching than funny. This is quite a different take on my original plan but I do quite like the thought of working on a project that touches peoples emotions a bit deeper too.

Final Year Project : Idea / Script Draft 01

This is the first script and story idea that came about. 

Final Year Project : Introduction

The beginning of my third and final year as a CG Arts & Animation student. 

I've been thinking of ideas over the summer that I could make an animation with.
After thinking up several ideas, I knew none of them were THE idea....

 .....until I went for a walk on the beach one day in the rain and saw an elderly couple wrapped up in warm clothes and blankets, sitting on camping chairs in the sand, with wind-breaks and umbrellas up pouring a cup of tea from a flask with great smiles on their faces enjoying themselves.

THIS is BRITISH I thought to myself. So from there I wanted to make a comedic short, nice and British for my final project.
