Hey everyone, I finally got my ‘Ah Ha’ moment to wrap up my idea for my grad film.
So here is my Grad Film idea.
Estimated length of project:
4-6 minutes (including title and credits)
Stop-motion (fabric puppets sewn together)
The battling we all have to get rid of those negative labels.
Background and Skills:
I have been experimenting and practicing with stop-motion through other projects and I believe I have found a technique that I like.
I also have a passion for writing, sewing, sculpting, sound design and many other things I plan to incorporate into my film to make it spectacular.
I am currently taking a creative writing course that will help prep my script for my film.
My goal is to show how powerful labels are and the battle to get rid of them.
-Shane Koyczan’s Poem ‘To This Day’
-Robert Frost’s Poem ‘The road not taken’
-I am Tom Moody film by Ainslie Henderson
– The Maker by Zealous Creative Studio is many inspiration for the visual
The premise of my film is to explore labels. I will talk five many labels I got growing up and how hard to get rid of them when the sink in. The labels I will explore that I got growing up are Worthless, Stupid, Ugly, Weak and Incapable.
As the visual I will express the labels as actual beings stop-motion puppets.
Story Beat List:
- Worthless Vs. Extraordinary
- Stupid Vs. Smart
- Ugly Vs. Beautiful
- Weak Vs. Strong
- Inadequate Vs. Capable
