Third Year Begins...

Today was the official start of our third year, and with an idea in place for the 'Self Initiated Project' its full steam ahead. As mentiond before i am collaborating with Sam Hayes, with an initial idea of creating a short based on Frankenstein. However times have changed and we are now working towards creating an environment based animation with oriental, western, and sci-fi influences. So far together we have worked out an idea and have started to visualize it via influence maps, along with a branded company. The next step within the pipeline of creating our animation will be to put the pen on paper and create our world, but not forgeting a rather vital step within the pipeline, being to finalise a script.

Initial synopsis of our idea:

An oriental western environment with an added Sci-Fi element: The environment, being the main focus of the project, would be explored by a character rather than a camera fly through. The environment would comprise aesthetics of oriental countries such as China, Malaysia, Thailand etc. and their ancient architecture. This would then be placed in a classic western environment for its harsh dessert land. Within this setting there would be a deserted industrial town which would contain an exhausted power source. The character, being the secondary focus of the project, will be a mechanical drone on a search mission for an object within the town. The drone will be alien to the town, but will belong to the same world.

This will be further developed, with a presentation ready for our official proposal on Friday.

  1. Hey Hey Mentor, Im Jamie! just thought I would comment on your influence maps because it really stuck out to me! I love some of your influences and they look outstanding and I look forward to seeing what you produce, although you may have considered these I was thinking about the game borderlands, they have some pretty outlandish western moments in there you may be interested in, anyway! look forward to speaking to you when I see you, cheers :)
