First concepts

A few images I did yesterday to start the ball rolling...

About film

Ok so my honours film is about 18th century buskers. I don't really want to upload the script to here, especially since it's not done yet..... Well, the original screenplay i wrote 2 years ago, but I'm in the process of adapting it to suit a very different style to the one I had originally in mind.

I'm simplifying it.

It's going to play out like a silent film, with only a musical score as the soundtrack. I want the animation (cut-out) to be exaggerated and theatrical, and the staging to resemble theatre productions. There will be a deliberate lack of depth in the environment, with the shots appearing flat and very static. Design-wise I'm going to aim for a combination of baroque art (mainly the colours to suit the time period) but also cubism and abstraction in order to convey certain elements clearly but keeping the camera angles flat and static.
