Story Idea

This is the first story idea, using the time-period that the phrase 'Children should be seen and not heard' is often connected with, Victorians, as well as interpreting 'In the Laboratory' as in an alchemists Laboratory.

  • Alchemist sat in the basement working with potions.
  • Noises of two children above keep distracting him and cause him to spill a chemical and ruin his work.
  • Frustrated, comes up with an idea to quieten the children by making a new potion that will turn them to stone.
  • Creates new potion.
  • Goes upstairs and gives the children the disguised potion.
  • Alchemist carries on his work happily in the basement now the two children are silent.

Initial Influence Map

Initial ideas for the direction to take the phrases in is for a Victorian time period due to the phrase 'Children should be seen and not heard' been commonly associated with it. Following the idea of this time period, interpreting 'In the Laboratory' as more of an alchemist working in the basement rather than a modern day laboratory.

Narrative & Character: Hidden Studios

"In the Laboratory-"

"Children should be seen and not heard"

As a group, Hannah, Tom and I have discussed ideas regarding the animation in production and have drawn up some ideas and mood-boards to illustrate the design of the laboratory setting and the tagline itself. We have toyed with the idea of using a consistently interrupted Victorian alchemist as our leading character.

Here I have drawn up some designs of the set, camera shots and possible storyboard settings, however the idea is a work in progress.

Also included is a possible banner/logo idea (below).
