World in a Room
My final film is completely different from my initial idea. After some reflection I was not happy with the initial story. I considered having the Maya figure rolling a ball under the door to the stop-motion figure, however I couldn't find any direction with this plot and was unsure where to take it. Time restraints got the better of me and I eventually returned to my original idea shown in the animatic. I started filming my stop-motion scenes according to the animatic. When I was filming the final scene I was having so much fun with the stop-motion puppet I got somewhat carried away. The result is below.
This scene triggered the idea of having the stop-motion figure in his room and the maya figure a giant outside his room - watching him and toying with him. The stop-motion figure is his toy. The Maya figure controls his world. Ultimately the Maya figure puts his hand in the room and takes out the stop-motion figure so he can play with him.
