A Few ideas!!!!

Hey guys i have been thinking about this project alot since we got it and have been thinking of places that inspire me and places i feel that we could adapt to create a great environment.

First off i will say we need to get the ball rolling so im gonna throw ideas out there and go from there.

Right first idea is adapting the beautiful and mesmeric surrounding of the "Serengeti migration" its so great and would be a challenge but i reckon by working hard i think we can create an awesome environment.

I am inspired alot by african art and this style of imagery could work beautifully in our cartoon approach to modelling.

Also animating would be no issue with so many species of animal living in the Serengeti and also the Masai tribes of Tanzania and kenya. This is such a visually appealing place and lighting will be key in creating a adaption of the Serengeti.

Research for african art is widely available in london and at the british Musuem they have room dedicated to africa. Also in a few days we will have access to one of the best documentaries ever made and was shown at Imax in 1994 "Africa : The Serengeti". I feel this idea lends its self to our cartoon approach so let me know what you think. :)

  1. This is a very good idea, it will definitley be unlike anything that anyone else is doing. I reckon we could definitley play around with "implied animation", particularly through the use of light and shadows; I can see this by studying the last photos. We also have an oppurtunity to use a wide range of camera angles. Keep it up!!
