Clips from last week's 'Reference' class.
Oh, remember to send me your scripts/story ideas. I have quite a few coming through now to read, so give me a bit of time. In the meantime, keep referencing, thumbnailing shots, character designs etc. It's week 8, and after the break in week 11, your work-in-progress will be reviewed before the final in-class presentation in week 4.
If you're not doing a pre-existing script, and your idea is new, try to think of your plot/story as simply as this:
Chuck Jones; referencing the style of the old "Hardy boys" style of novels, historical references etc. Note the smearing style of animation in the fast action movements of the cartoon, and the fantastic character posing employed by Jones.
Jackie Chan: Referencing the silent movie directors of old with his take on physical comedy and martial arts/Peking Opera style action scenes.
For some strange reason, I can't get a clip from the 'Project: A' Clock Tower scene due to some copyright/region thing. Anyway, you guys remember. Here's the reference for that scene.
