Unit 7: Narrative - Brief Introduction

Hello Everyone,

I just thought id give a little more background into this brief and some of my initial thoughts towards the challenge ahead as it were. We have our groups drop box setup making it easy for us to communicate on files etc, we have our blog site up (the template is on its way). We have the time period for our animated short which is the industrial revolution & I'm hoping that by tomorrow we have a few possible ideas in our little piggy bank...

The narrative brief itself has us working with 2 other individuals from our class in collaboration for this project which will defiantly be helpful lightening the load. Our time management is sorted (well part 1 has been published) I'm sure this unit will be a hefty challenge its kind of a relief to have longer here...


Alan has kindly given me a few films (Brazil, shown above) to check out from European cinema which surround the controversial no resolution ending (which happens to be one of my favourite methods of storytelling)Our group has come to the understanding that we need lots of ideas however so we are all searching the recesses of our minds for any and all story topics before deciding on a final idea and hopefully coming up with our own reasons.

Our initial tip of the cup idea just from a little brain storming was delving into child labour (image above) in the mines in light of a massive collapse, particularly with a child and a K-nine friend. It is a direction to consider but I think we are a little squeamish for something overly sad but who knows it could be a possible way to consider. There is something that fascinates me about this topic I wont lie to you, particularly the clothes I think which would be interesting to model.

Anyway I wont waffle further I just thought I would get down some of my personal experience which this brief so far and roll it into a little introduction. I think we are on track with the deadlines this far and hopefully by the end of these 12 weeks our animation should be something we will remember (at the very least).

I hope everyone else is having fun with this brief.

Catch you guys later no doubt.
