I was super late for this update and super inactive recently because I just want to get everything done before I posted some WIP here. I will update the WIP slowly so please give me some times!
As new semester started, I as well also started the new studio pitching, this time we have to do a 2 minute animation that will be 2 characters’ interactions. For this project we have to group with classmates and the idea to work on will be voted by classmates, so it means some ideas will be chosen some will not. (others just be slaves HAHA)
So, the narrative for the studio have some requirements, either one of them will be fine:
- An idea that tackles a social or political issue, raise awareness and promote agency in an ethical way.
- An idea that explores human relationships and humanity.
- An idea that explore the fluid conditions of life, taking inspiration from poetic moments.
For the first one, i would like to present the emptyness of life, like how the main character will search his way to fill the empty in his entire life. The masks, the broken glasses and the see shaw will be the symbolism in the film. If i can work on this film, the film will be exactly an art film rather than an animation film so i rejected this idea.
The second idea much more interesting, i was trying to portray on how nowadays people working blindly as machines, they don’t have any dream and thinking anymore. The narrative will be something related to game with devil, which the character has to escape away and try to win the battle, if not he will turn into a machine and work like others.
The last one, which is me in real life (tsk), presenting a love story between a female who seeking for love and a fictional character. Yesh, a fictional character.
From the shots of having her chatting via social media, and how she felt into the deep sea because she couldn’t find someone that could company her except her phone and the fictional character in the game.
This idea got the most voted, but i still want to work with the second idea, which is the devil and the machines.
