Yesterday on the open day Kavya, Andy and I met up (Cat could sadly not make it) and we did a brainstorm were we just got a few ideas on paper! Some of them are a bit weaker than others, but I decided to just put all of them on here so we can at least make sure that we've given every idea a chance.
- we started off with an imaginary friend who could also be a dead twin that the character still talks to or even a ghost
the one I like best is a bout a couple that goes through a divorce but
hasn't told their friends yet, so whenever they are at parties they have
to pretend to still be best friends but the moment they leave they part
ways, drop their face and go to their own homes were they look at
pictures of times when they were still happy together and just feel
sorry for themselves - quick story board:
- A pet is a crime fighter behind the
owners back, always disappears at night and comes back with bruises and
cuts etc and the news wonder who keeps their streets clean at night
- A tiger is a ferocious beast in the show bust best friends with his partner behind the scenes
- something about salt and pepper??
An elephant and bird have a symbiotic (I think that's the word?)
friendship were they help each other out, bird picks nasty insects from
the elephants back and is in turn allowed to build his nest on top of
him, one day bird flies into trees and elephant wanders off so the bird
has to find the elephant with his kids -- maybe a bit too childish?
a cliff thinks the sea is it's best friend as it's always there for it
but doesn't realise that the sea is slowly eating away from the cliff
2 socks from different pairs are best friends and always try to be as
close as possible to each other so when the human wears only one out of
the two they sabotage their human - potential for comedy?
- squirrel and tree are best friends - lot's of puns?
a guy has a breakup with his girlfriend and turns more and more into a
slob, his friends hatch plans to get him out of his flat and succeed in
the end - morale:you are nothing without your friends?
- 2 really good friends are super competitive when it comes to sports up to the point where it threatens their friendship
- two friends swear at each other and show their affection that way (- see what I mean with weaker than others?)
the letters of the alphabet make literature or poetry by chasing each
other but secretly hat each other as well - this is very abstract but I
think if done right it could be an engaging animation
(minutes and hours) fingers of a clock want to be together so badly but
for obvious reason, can't be. They might try to brake the clock? More of
a love story than friendship though
It's a start!
