“Wait, Mister!” – An Introductionon April 29, 2006 at 3:03 pm
Welcome to the production log of my 3D Animation Masters Project at Bournemouth University. We were given the opportunity to work on either 2 short single term projects or 1 that extends across both terms. I chose the latter, and also decided to work on an individual project instead of being part of a group. All of us were assigned weekly tutorial sessions with a tutor whose main task is to discuss our progress, guide us along and offer feedback. At the end of the day though, it’s down to the students to decide what they want from the project, how much effort they want to put into it and keep it squarely on track.
My project is tentatively entitled “Wait, Mister!” and is a short film about a snobbish gentleman who encounters a friendly homeless kid while waiting at the bus stop. It has a simple premise and a pretty straightforward story. I’m focusing on the interaction between the two characters, and if the intended message (cheesy as it may be) gets across to the audience, it’s a bonus. Maybe it sounds a bit silly, but I would like to create something that, aside from being mildly entertaining, includes a tiny bit of life lesson for the viewer to digest. I’ll upload some of the draft storyboards in my next post. Welcome aboard ladies and gentlemen. I hope you enjoy the ride!
