I was inspired by short videos of paper-doll animations I watched recently.
(not 100% sure if they used paper doll for this one, but I enjoy the character designs and atmosphere)
But I thought that these are too complicated to accomplish in 5 weeks.
And I found this animation, which I liked much yet seemed less painful.
I liked how simple collections of black Shillouettes of characters move, while the simply colored background gives the sense of time and atmosphere.
I thought it is good idea to make a stop-motion paper-animation because the less digital we go, the more we could collaborate. I like designing characters and environments. Therefore if this proposal chosen, I look forward to work on shapes of characters or the background as an Art director. The story is going to be based on can give learning and lessons. A tweaked version of Aesop's fables or a short story from Talmud would be a great choice considering the amount of time we have.
I did a very rough sketch of how I would want the characters and background to feel like.
