Team3 Brief Draft v2 15-10-13

  1. 1. GLOBAL STUDIO - TEAM 3 (CONKER) BRIEF October 2013 - 1st DRAFT STORY OF THE BROWNIE SCOTTISH & NORTHERN ENGLISH FOLKLORE
  2. 2. STORY OF THE BROWNIE A short overview of our values and the background surrounding our Folklore, Brownies These kindly and dependable creatures attach themselves to human households, where they help with chores and protect the well-being of people living on “their” land. Fiercely loyal, brownies will defend a home and its surrounding estate. They live somewhere on the land they protect. Despite their love of cleanliness, brownies are rather shabby in appearance, often going shoeless or wholly unclothed. Even so, they expect no payment other than scraps of food and a bowl of milk left out at night; in fact, further gifts are likely to induce adverse effects. Unusual organization of items is also common in houses with brownies. A brownie may alphabetize books by the middle initial of the author’s names or file records by the titles of favorite songs. Industrious themselves, even the gentlest of brownies hates laziness in others. If taken advantage of, or otherwise ill-used, the brownie may become a boggart.

  6. 6. KEY CRITERIA A short outline of our expectations and hopes for concept generation The aim of our brief is to instil key values of the brownie folklore in a modern context This will be done using a playful non digital medium. One which promotes sharing, modesty and the importance of being humble. All of these are prominent values in English society, We thought the best examples of English Heritage would be from the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7YHDfLxZi0 In terms of future development we would like our prototype to have the ability to be ‘open-source’, free give away or a promotional gift. This aspect fits the story of the humble brownie. 6 | Global Studio Team 3 - Brief October 2013
