we have been set a particularly bleack text for are animation that covers teh rest of term and christmas:


Once upon a time
there was a lonely wolf
lonelier than the angels.

He happened to come to a village.
He fell in love with the first house he saw.

Already he loved its walls
the caresses of its bricklayers.
But the window stopped him.

In the room sat people.
Apart from God nobody ever
found them so beautiful
as this child-like beast.

So at night he went into the house.
He stopped in the middle of the room
and never moved from there any more.

He stood all through the night, with wide eyes
and on into the morning when he was beaten to death.

yea so.....thats a tad depressing.

All i wanted from this brief relay was a free rain and abitly to finaly use stop motion (model animation), so i can devlop in my modeling ability.

Though I think I'm going to take this brief and alter it to something i've wanted to do since last year, I've wanted to create a 'Freak' based naimation ever since teh circus poster Brief we were given last year. I've had an intrest in the freak show, and deformaty for a longt time now but it was'nt till last year i was properly allowed to vent my intrests in a creative way.

Since last year i've steadly been watching and seeing as much to do with the circus, cranie folk and freak shows as I can. Last uear I attended a talk (with preformances) on the history of the Circus. And during the summer I was finaly able to attend a Freak act by the fantastic Circus of Horrors.

I laso manged to watch a intreging Documnetry on Joseph Merrick (the Elphant Man), as well as watching Dan Browns Freaks last year, i did also watch the elphant man in teh university Liabray, im not much of a cryer in fioms, but i sobed my eyes out in the middle of teh Libary whalst watching this truely beuitful accout of a fantastic Man.

All in all I think this may be the perfect time to create a piece that incoperaqtes all these things.
