The wise Gorilla

Industry exercise 1

My brief is:

“We would like your students to design and animate some characters for us for a potential animated advertisement for London Zoo. We are thinking about using a visual style that reflects traditional “Claymation” techniques but will be generated using CG processes. The characters should be worked up from the following list:”

We have been given five characters, a hyperactive boy who loves creepy crawlies, an older sister who is a very knowging for her age, their grandma (who is paranoid about the monkeys throwing poo all over her hat) , an angry scottish Zoo kepper, and last of all a very civilised silverback gorilla.

i think the gorilla appealed most to me :
 Cornelius – “A middle aged silver back gorilla, the most civilised and sensible occupant of the zoo by far.”

as i read it images of
 Bollo from the mighty Boosh

 Houston from space chimps

 and for some reason i also pictured Fowler the old cockerel from chicken run.
