Short & Fat Character
This character will be quite shy and nervous, and so will be very awkward when he's on screen. This will also mean that he's a bit clueless and is easily confused. Kent "Flounder" Dorfman from National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) and Fatbot from Futurama are too existing examples of characters who suit the design idea and the personality described. Both have a child-like innocence to them as well and so they would often say the obvious.
Where as the tall and thin character is quite stern and proud of himself, the average character is a bit of a push over. Although, he is more confident than the short and fat character, he still struggles to take control in certain situations. This character, however, does like to have fun and so does try to play the Joker in the group. Lee Evans and Michael Palin are too examples who suit the design, and are both capable of bringing the laughs.
In the tutorial we also discussed what my aim for the interim crit is, and that is to:
- Get the Character designs completed.
- Finalise the story/clip ideas.
- Create an animatic for one of those clips.
