A main part of our story is going to be told through a children’s illustrated story book. The book is based around two fairies who go on a journey looking for wealth and fortune. The book was originally going to be a ‘pop up’ storybook, but this was later changed to a normal and traditional book.
In the end after one goes on a hard journey and one goes on an easy journey, they both find each other at the end of their paths. The moral being that family and friendship is worth so much more than any wealth.
In the beginning it was just Julie who was working on this part of the film, but after it being viewed by the tutors, it was decided it needed to change. I came on board and this point and we decided that it would be best for me to work on the backgrounds/environments and for Julie to work on the fairy characters and all of their poses and actions.
I took most of my inspiration from the old storybooks such as A.A Milnes ‘Winnie the Pooh’, Beatrix Potter’s ‘Peter Rabbit’ and Jill Barklems ‘Brambley Hedge’.
