Unit 3 Story telling project
New year and a new project but this time the focus is on story telling which leads onto the pre production of an animated short. On brief day we chose randomised elements that would help us to build a strong narrative using the 3 act structure. The elements were categorised as Environment, Character and Prop.
The elements I chose were:
As soon as I read that I had a morgue my first thought was depressing and quickly turned my attention to how I could have a sinister setting but with a lively, funny story. Then I picked the Window Washer and Fishbowl and it fitted perfectly with my first initial idea for a story.

My reaction to the fishbowl as a prop is positive because I could have another charactyer within it who could be the actual main character and dictates the mood of what the animation is set in, this could be done by having the fish react with facial expresssions and exaggerated body language to express his opinions on the actions and consequences of the idiotic secondary character (Window Washer), I'm still trying to find an example of a mainb character working off of secondary character but not being the main focus of action, I know I've seen it somehwere.
