For our fourth year final film myself, Susan Ball, Kat Bambi Baxter and Jamie Bell are working on a short animation currently entitled Colour Transmitted Disease, or CTD for short. The original idea belonged to Jamie Bell, and he asked me to get on board towards the end of last term with Suba and Bambi joining soon after.
The following is our first synopsis which we recently sent to Wayne for approval. The synopsis is basically the idea that Jamie Bell pitched to me way back when and the group have been working and developing it all term. It's quite short but we feel it gets across the general idea for the animation quite well.
Hope you enjoy, more to follow soon!
Our idea is based on the idea of colour bleeding in a laundry wash. Jamie Bell presented me with the idea of a little red boy, in an entirely red world finding a white world and exploring it, unintentionally infecting the white world with his red dye. The story follows the spread of the red infection as it taints the white world pink. Pulling away from the red boy we see the neighbourhood and eventually the town becoming infected with colour. Finally we pull out from the world through the perspex door of a washing machine, which reveals a red sock in a white wash. Nightmare.
