Ideas: Movie needs commentary, subtle and light.. behind the animation. With each movement in the animation, the commentary explains why shapes are being placed where they are, and what the interaction between the animations will be. Very hard to explain in words.. but it'll be like I'm explaining the animations, and how and what they all mean. It'll be put in lay man's terms, I promise. That means mom and dad will be able to understand it, and perhaps even end up liking it. I'm secretly making this movie for my parents.. or at least with them in mind. They are my targeted audience if you will. The rest of the audience is just a lucky bystander..
Ideas: Create long shot of entire animation.. must be drawn from left-bottom-corner to the right.. and left-top-corner to the right. So that animations can be added behind, and after, the hands. This will be useful when putting more than one hand in the frame.. We can start the bottom corner to the right.... and then the second hand can be used at the same pace.... but it'll be behind the first hand animation.. man that is confusing.. but i think it makes total sense.
Ideas: Instead of the city angle I'm using right now.. Go for more of a flat shot looking straight on, but the buildings warp outside and bend and expand from a focal point. And the subway will come straight through the bottom of the city... easier to animate.. As blossom's brother Joey always used to say.. Whoa.... The skyline behind the city will be a scene by scene animation. Of clouds moving and the sun setting.. but not really vibrant.. just a simple sphere passing between lines.. creating a broad shadow. And then the night time comes from one single dot that continues to grow.. (use scene by scene animation for this as well)
Next to do: I need to create a timeline with all the points of production that I need to exist. Create tight deadlines and go for an early film release. But keep it simple or you're going to hell.
Anyway, so you're probably wondering what the hell just happened.. so am i.
p.s. don't kill anybody
