Possible names for the project:
"Like a Child"
"Something to Care for" --> like the puppy he's holding, not sure about that one though (sounds like a terrible pop song xD)
"Cardboard Box Chicken"
"Returning to a Child"

I have not found the dad's name out yet but will put it on here when I do!

Edit: Father's name is Jim!
 And Kayliegh suggested "Return to Childhood", will definitely consider that one as well :)


  1. for me - return to childhood is too literal. It should just be the man's name, because his name isn't given in the actual spoken text, and without his name, it's going to feel to detached for audiences.

    'Jim' is perfect.

    This edit is good, Mailin - I think the 'in' and 'out' points are working nicely now.

    I gave you a list of jobs to do on Monday - one of them I think was 'CHANGE YOUR BLOG!!!' because it's not as sophisticated as you are already, and it's nowhere near as sophisticated as it needs to be in terms of self-promotion. I don't know who the girl is on your blog banner, but it's time she packed her bags and left! You need something chic, elegant, probably white, and much more professional. JVW's blog is a great example of what a good year three blog looks like:


    You don't need much to brand a blog elegantly - in fact less is often more - but it is time you took yourself more seriously and a blog make-over would be a great place to start!

    Meanwhile, this might be interesting to you in terms of 'collage' and using 'real world' textures as an animation language: https://vimeo.com/116918317

    When you start visualising everything in your talk-track, I want you to brain-storm each image and grow from it more associations: what do I mean, well, for example, when she talks about herself flying about really quickly in the mornings, I pictured cars going around and round a race-track, with the grandad character in the middle - so not literal interpretations, but animation-centric metaphors; as you put pictures to her words, brainstorm each of those words, looking for further visual interpretations/associated images etc

    Look at surrealism - look at Magritte:


    (use of absences, 'blanks', objects replacing faces, humans as 'cut-outs' etc, dream-like tableaux).

  6. Saw these - hardly the same thing I know, but I did think they might further inspire some collage/deconstructed/surreal approaches to depicting the 'memory space' of Jim :)
