By the time we have 2 weeks left for the final outcomes to be born, Guan suggested an idea of a more concentrated collective of 5 - 6 animations in total, within the theme "Cooking". The 5 or 6 short animations will be about the sensory combination between images and sounds of processes from one cooking activity. I myself think it's a concise thought and wholeheartedly agree with hers.
In terms of time and technical capacity, we had decided to make 5 videos - each of us will do 2 individually and the last 1, we would collaborate.
The particular sections we took on are as follow:
Guan : Whisking ; Dining (Eating with fork and knife)
Chi : Chopping ; Frying.
Collaboration: Dish Washing.
Here are the storyboards I came up with my sections. . .
As mentioned in my previous posts of drawing practices, my suggestion to our duo progress is to narrow the chosen selections by listing a number of various daily activities - actions that normally seem to be unnoticed or even, "unheard".
The list we came up with together had about 25-30 activities and from that, each of us by preference, chooses 3 that we want to further progress. At this stage, Guan had chosen "Crying", "Laughing" and "Eating Crisps" and for me, I had chosen "Machine Sewing", "Hair Blow-drying" and "Cooking".
Below are my very first developing storyboards' drafts. Click for larger view!
