So remember that student project I was talking about yesterday? I think I scared them off.
Actually, here’s what happened. Yesterday when I came in to talk to the students, someone else from another company was there at the same time. We went into separate rooms, started pitching away, and then Alec came running in about 10 minutes later and said “STOP! I gave you the wrong group!”
Alec had handselected the teams based on what he thought they’d be good at and what they wanted to get out of the course. I guess this other company was doing a monkey-chasingbanana pilot (just speculating here), and while he was pitching his storyboard to the edgy scifi nerd animators, I was pitching my edgy scifi nerd show to the banana chasers.
At the time, we all sorta said “wanna just keep going?” “Yeah” and I kept on with the banana chasers. But at the end of the day, the nerds and the bananas got together and decided that Alec was right, and they should swap projects. Monkeys got the banana, and nerds got the scifi. Happy all around.
So, introducing my new group: Amy, Abigail, Clare and Stephen!
Once I’ve got some visuals I’ll probably pop back and throw them up on here for your perusal, along with some early concept ideas. Sit tight.
