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.
