I’d like to take a modern day scenario and add cg to it. This is the basic idea I’m looking at, thinking about the world and the way it is progressing I believe that, we as human are not the only living things in the universe, where is the world going? Thinking beyond our kind what else is out there? Things change can change quite dramatically in life so therefore using this thought as my basis, I’ve worked out a scenario I can work around. Creating extra terrestrial creatures to add to the whole drama of my animation.
The idea come around watching some students match moving work on the Mac computer at uni, during that week the film cloverfield was being broadcasted on TV which I watched, prior to this matchmoving tasks where being worked on during the last assignment, so a lot of events just lead up to my decision. Also having worked with AfterEffects this would be ideal for use in this project.
Here’s a quick script of the scenario:
mobile phone in dirt
phone beings to flicker
enters phone screen
friends playing in park (gordon promenade)
things become disoriented
friends run from scene..
creature appears from Thames.
friends continue running..
gordon promenade pavilion is noticed as friends hide
friends are astonished and amazed also fearful at the same time
gordon promenade pavilion is seen transforming into space craft as alien species enter
As noted in my script and the location in which my animation will take place I found that I have everything I need in my home town of Gravesend, the Gordon promenade has been a great tourist location over the years and obtains some nice historic facts about it. Many people visit the park for that reason it makes a nice area to film. These are some snap I took with my mobile and other images sourced from Google.
