Project Proposal

 

Abstract: A film & a book. Same title, same story.

Purpose: To tell one story in multiple forms

  • Tell an untold story of my own
  • Complete story in to book form
  • Challenge myself to put story in to a new media, film!

Methodology: Write story, story board, create book & animate with all pieces and digital animative additions plus SOUND!

Desired Outcome: To compose a story of my own in a new media in multiple forms. I hope to inspire someone else to tell their story, to provide a connection, a memory to someone’s culture, history, childhood.

Questions ? Support needed? I’ll need to create a timeline and schedule of deadlines to be able to accomplish this all. Time & space. Any tips or ideas for storyboarding.
