Final Project Proposal
The first idea I had for this project dealt with â€śwho makes terroristsâ€?. The problems I come to are how I would show the message I am trying to get across.
I am thinking that I will try stop action again. I have always been interested in it and I would very much like to become better at it. Whenever I watch professional claymations I want to strive to be that good, if only for a short clip. I want to work on the smoothness of movements in the characters. I also want to work more with sound in the claymation.
I am also thinking that I will use clay again, because I think it will be the easiest medium to work with to show â€śmaking a terroristâ€?. I would like to reuse some objects that I have made/used in the past; I believe that conceptually this shows that whoever makes the terrorist doesnâ€™t always make them from scratch but builds upon existing hate or fear. I think that I want to incorporate the media somehow but I am not sure how I would go about doing that.
Some initial thoughts on this project I had are that I will have someone take pictures of me making clay figures with terroristâ€™s faces on them and then pan up to my face to see who the creator is. Iâ€™m not really sure yet on whom I will have be the creator, or if it will be just one person or thing. I am still toying with a few ideas and I am not completely set on stop-action, claymation, or the concept behind it. I am a little worried I might come off to controversial.
I suppose I just need some feedback and some suggestions, I have hit a wall with ideas on this project.
