Some dream world

Dear animators

Here is some of the concept for the dream world scenes after talking with you today.
first of all it was very nice to hear the feedback and I think the project is starting to take shape very nicely :P

Anyway here they are, and feedback is allways welcome :)

Start sketching characters - Here it the style it has to fit in with.
The start image is one of the dark parts of the coma world.

Characters we have:
Main character - selfish, lawyer, stubborn, in a suit.
Little girl - She is already in a coma, very naive, sweet innocent.
Realworld taxi driver - Working man, very quite.
Comaworld taxi driver - Is part the the seat, use imaginenation to use car elements for a character. The sky is the limit.

Hitchhikers reference

Great posts.

I think its a really cool idea to take inspiration from that movie esben. Especially the 4th picture shows a great way to illustrate transitions in environments.

I dont know if you have seen Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, but the ending could be a really cool source of inspiration too, where the main character is confronted with how the planets are being built and they float along in a wierd crane thing.

this is a crappy photo and i couldnt find any movies about it, but I just thought it would be a good idea. :)

Environment - suggestions

Shots from Lovely Bones. I like the otherworldly feel to it, simplify it and play with the proportions of things and color. What do you say ? 

The style I had in mind.

Story Beat idea

Really REALLY simple story beat idea that I threw together in Photoshop.

  1. Alien passenger waits on an asteroid, looking for a ride home.  Space cab picks him up.
  2. They travel through interesting locales as important information about the film is ex-posited either as text or through a voice over.
  3. Alien is left at his home in a futuristic apartment complex in a city, and is left looking back at that inspiring driver.
This one here is basically to get us to start thinking more, and am more than happy to have everything change here.  I can come up with some more if need be, but I'd like to see everyone's ideas too in the sense of plot structure.

more thoughts

Just a little note before I leave for holiday. I don’t remember if we talked about the Fifth element? I think there are some ideas we could look at for our trailer. I think there is a lot of inspiration in style, colour, rhythm, story telling and a strong design. Some of it might fit for our Trailer?

 Regarding Lars’ post, I think it is great with some initiative. Could someone please sum up the elevator idea? It is a bit unclear for me what is exactly is. I think I lost my notes and memory after a long summer. For deciding our different roles I think we should do that when we all are together after holiday. 

I like the simple look from Adrians little film that Krist posted -I like that idea. Also the magic from the The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus.

I wish you all an awesome August!
