The idea and context of the piece persists, where now the final outcome of the project will be to create a short scene of the animation (akin to an animated still image) capturing a moment of flight of the protagonist and his island. This may involve a single camera movement slowly revealing elements of the animated image to suggest the narrative of the piece.
This breaks down the main challenges of the project to:
- Environment Home/Island
- Animation of flight (secondary objects)
In this way, the narrative is found within the image, rather than told as a grand structured narrative as a whole. More time can also be dedicated into strengthening the design and the animation as a whole.
I'll organise a formal project proposal soon enough, while continuing to get things moving with research and references.
