OY! I am so terrified to do this! But facing fear is what the Thunderdome is all about, yes?
My side-kick concept is going to focus on the role of the stage manager, because never does a director wander far without a stage manager close behind, clipboard in tow. (Personal Narrative? What?)
As far as a story, I am unsure of whether to focus on a particular instance, or whether to create a sort of montage of clips from a play production process. Either way, I'm hoping to exaggerate the stage manager role in a super-hero-like fashion.
Character designs will be a difficult step for me - I'd like to make designs from the get-go that are easier to animate, and that sort of stylization is something I've always had trouble with. The main characters will be the director and the stage manager, with possibly a couple of actors that will need fleshed out designs as well.
For my weapons of choice, I'll be using Flash and.....probably just Flash.
Okay! Sketches to be posted soon. I'm so terrified! *dives in*
