This project is a narrative based photo manipulation series. The series will begin with photographs of the city, and other surfaces, and be overlaid with original art and paper cut outs that interact with the environment. The story will be determined by the group as a whole, while the look will be defined by the fantasy genre, with overtones of either humor or horror. Everyone will have their own style, but the street art theme should also carry through the compilation.
The process for this project is as follows:
>Group brainstorm, writing session, divide work, organize work by major
>Tagline, treatment, list of supplies, finalized schedule
>Storyboards, scouting scenes, test animation, test shots
>take pictures, draw characters, make contact sheets for animation
>Edit photos, digitally alter photos, add illustrations, shoot animation
>Put everything together and edit into either a video with narration, music, or basic sound.
Creative director- handles story, composition, overall mood

Illustrations: Illustrators, animators, fine artists.
Animations: animators, cinematographers, anyone who can draw characters
