Story Idea #2

The same as #1 but with a cat... yep, a cat.
Technically that damn impossible at our stage. We are only learning fundamental animation rules at the moment, let alone create and animate a world of cats.

Earl - you scare me sometimes... you are asked to PRE-PRODUCE a one minute animation not PRODUCE one - there's a difference; most people have story ideas with people in them - also beyond technical skill level - I guess that's why you're being asked to PRE-PRODUCE it! The cg pre-vis is cg modelling at its most basic and in the service of understanding story structure, shot composition and camera movement; this is about the goddamn STORY... sigh. Can I suggest you go look at your brief as a matter of some urgency and ensure that you know what it's asking you to do... if your story needs cats, give it cats!!!

Is scaring you good or bad? I get what the brief is asking but I was just pre-emptivily thinking about the next stage. I never really took the cat idea seriously, just an off shot concieved by the other ideas I have. I'm not restricting myself to technicalness just trying to think outside the box. My story doesn't need a cat...
and I never said I wouldn't do it, just that it would be hard in the long run.
