SPACE PUG PROJECT PROPOSAL
The type of project: 2-3 minute animated short
Core Concept/idea: A space pug must rescue his favoured chew toy from the treacherous clutch of a black hole.
Research path: I want to research Soviet space programs, particularly the ones concerning the use of dogs. In addition I also want to research black holes and their effects.
Goals: To create a finished animated short that demonstrates both technical skill as well as being an engaging piece of entertainment. To successfully create rigged and textured characters capable of realistic movement.
Outcomes: To create a finished, polished animated short. By the end of the minor project, two rigged and prepared characters should be read for animating.
Week 1 - 2 = Proposal, development of proposal, refining of the story.
Week 3 - 6 = Production of artwork, concepts, etc
Week 7 - 14 = Production of Assets (Maya characters, etc).
This is my proposal for my 3rd Year project; Space Pug. I hope this is a realistic proposal and will refine it from here.
