Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

Keeping with the theme of wonderful things happening within the scene the Charlie and the chocolate factory comes to mind. I’m still in search for the perfect piece of text for my world to come to life in. Roald Dhal has some interesting visions perhaps I can find something here. These are some nice visual shots taken from the adaptations made over the years.
The first adaption (1971) of Roald Dahl’s 1964 novel.

The more present (2005) adaptation.

Hi Raj

If you can find the audio CD of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory read by Roald Dahl. There is something magical about the story being read by its author. His vocal performance puts a different spin on the text and reveals some of his original intentions, instead of those more culturally recognised by the movie adaptations.

Hey Alan

This is really interesting thank you I’ll have to look into this deeper. At the moment my mind right now is set on a poem which I’m looking to develop further. Take a look it’s the John Foster poems post and the ‘Tell me it isn’t there’ poem (Trevor Millum) let me know what you think... the idea simply is to combine cg and the real world.
