Project 2

I’ve decided to go along with an idea I had for the first semester’s project for this semester’s one; the creation story.  It can be found in Genesis 1 and 2 and tells the story of God’s creation of the universe which I think is quite an important story; it shows God’s creative power and His love for the universe and everything in it.

Inspirations have come from three main places for the whole project: The Brick Testament, The Manga Bible and Kick-Ass (three things that don’t usually go together!).  I hope to create a new way to teach and learn from the Bible to appeal to those who might not have looked into it before in a stylistic and aesthetically pleasing way.

The Brick Testament uses Lego to tell Bible stories in a new way.

The Manga Bible also tells Bible stories in a new way and plays with the idea of Moses as the story teller.

The Kick-Ass stills here are of the scene that has inspired me somewhat: the camera moves in and out of the tiles of the comic with animation happening inside in a really cool and stylistic way.  I’d like to emulate that to a certain extent with my animation.

The final idea I’m playing with is that which I first originally had back in September ’10, to have a pop-up style animation.  This will be something along the lines of the Desperate Housewives introduction and could be integrated within the comic book style look; the pop-ups happening inside the comic tiles.
