Moodboards and Plot

  1. 1. Here is the mood board I created for the main character Jo, we wanted an androgynous female who would contrast to a more feminine Lily. We also thought this would make the storyline more believable. <br />
  2. 2. Becca created this mood board for setting, we wanted to film in a lush green natural place for part of the short film, sadly with the very cold, very wet weather of England we weren’t able to do so, but we did get the opening and closing scene filmed outside which I was happy about, I always think natural light looks better on film than artificial. <br />
  3. 3. Originally we had hopes of doing parts of our film in hand illustrated stop-frame-animation. I had created a mood board for inspiration and ideas on how the pictures in the book might look. I thought it would have been a really nice idea to have the main character drawing the pictures and then have them coming to life and changing into the actors .<br />
  4. 4. Original Idea…<br />“<br />We have decided to base our short film around the genre of romanticism, with an element of humour. The film follows our main character through attempts to win over the girl she wants. It also deals with the issue of 'coming out', we feel that it is an issue that effects a lot of young people, and would interest many more. <br />The main character Jo remains unseen from face on until the last scene of the film as we plan to use mainly over the head shots, and shots from behind to conceal her identity. Through doing so we will be able to create an enigma, and a twist at the end as the audience realises that she is female. The mood board above shows how we aim to keep the audience guessing through using androgynous styling.<br />We also want to start the film with the waking of Jo, the camera will be shooting through her eyes at the opening.<br />The main character Jo has a notebook that she continually draws and writes in, we want to show the progression of her drawings, then use stop frame animation as a transition from drawings to real actors being filmed.<br />The first scenes track Jo walking, she then bumps in to Lily - the girl she desires. From that point we see the Jo drawing in her book and the pictures becoming real, the pages flick backwards time rewinds. After several attempts at creating the perfect situation we plan to close the film.<br />”<br />
  5. 5. Revised Idea…<br />“<br />We have decided to base our short film around the genre of romanticism, with an element of humour. The film follows our main character through attempts to win over the girl she wants. It also deals with the issue of 'coming out', we feel that it is an issue that effects a lot of young people, and would interest many more. <br />The main character Jo remains unseen in the opening scene where she begins to write the story in her notebook, her voice narrates the story. In the end scene when Lily walks over to meet Jo, the audience realise that is a true story that she was writing from her own experience.<br />We decided to use stop-frame-animation from the change in time – present, to past (Jo is telling a story that has already happened).<br />The first scenes track Jo walking, she then bumps in to Lily - the girl she desires. From that point we see the Jo and Lily continually bumping into each other, often in awkward circumstances until they walk out of shot to a lesson together and then the film goes back to present time and we see how circumstances have changed since that day.<br />”<br />
