I am planning to edit this post as I add in stuff or delete by 18th this post will be complete that's a promise ;)
And if you guys are kind to add in some Idea to develop my script by 18th it will be awesome-
In my proposal I am planning to do a short documentary on the evolution of gaming, well sort of.
these are the games-
from guinness book of world records top ten are written below (and in bracket i am suggesting the game i would like to work on)
1. tetris 1987- (packman)
2. super mario world- (1991)
3. street fighter 2- (1991)
4. super mario kart (1992)
5. grand theft auto (1997)
6. goldeneye 007 ( 1997)
7. legend of zelda: ocarina of time (1998)
8. Halo: Combat evolved (2001)
9. Resident Evil 4 (2005)
10. Final Fantasy XII (2006)
somewhere in that list I would like to add Mordern Warfare (probably replacing goldeneye)
steps for animated short:
first few seconds we have our production name and title and intro shot of an 80s style arcade shop and camera zooms in on an arcade machine until the music kicks in
then the ghosts from packman rolls in with packman following them followed by all the other characters from next games on list showing up doing their stuff. they can be different world's like the motivation video i posted on top of this post with actors from different game doing their usual stuff.
this will be added with every game will have some data showing up- for example when we will show character from street fighter 2 (example: ryu jumps on the pit does a hurricane kick and finishes sagat with a dragon punch) we can have interesting data like how SF2 changed game industry and how much it earned written on top like how the writing shows up on games (12 hit combo/ super power charged etc).
since the music is repeated music we can shorten the music and make the animation short as well. we can probably reduce it down to 2 minutes with credit and intro included.
audience: our audience is teenages aged 12- 26? mostly from youtube?
how do I picture it? since different games has different styles we have to merge all these games into one style so they are still recognizable and looks like part of one show. i picture it as something from samurai jack or dexters lab.
this is it for now. ;)- I will add in more details to make it more clearer. ;)
