This blog is to show my development for my BA work this year. I have been thinking a lot about what I should pitch at college as a possible project idea. I have started to form an idea that I think I will progress with seriously in the next month or so.
Before I share my general concept with you, I would like to share a song with you first. Whenever I heard this song, a story formed in my head of what would happen.
It's called "1940" by The Submarines
My vision is that I would be able to reproduce this music for my project idea without the lyrics. I'd like it to have more of a childish edge to it. I don't want to copy this music completely, but I want to get a similar quirky atmosphere that this track gives.
The idea that I have come up with is as follows. I'll try and explain it as well as possible.
A happy boy goes to bed and snuggles to sleep with his favourite toy (Teddy probably. Perhaps a car, toy monster etc). However, a cheeky monster steals away his toy, awaking the boy from his slumber. The monster teases the boy and they wrestle for the teddy. The boy manages to retrieve the toy, but the monster becomes upset. He's a lonely monster. In the end, the boy lets the friendly monster play with his teddy when he's asleep at night. And at the end, (after or during credits, for example) the monster is asleep whilst the boy plays with his teddy during the day.
This isn't the final concept, but this gives you an idea of how the story goes.
