After our discussion yesterday, we all agreed to head off a write up our version of the story and a brief description of the characters (maybe even some visual reference).
- Scene opens with 2D (paper-like character with 2D animated face) standing to right of frame holding picture of girlfriend (very stick figure cartoon that she is)
- 3D (simple but definitively 3D, similar look to 2D) enters from left of screen
- "Hi 3D, how are you going?", "Good thanks 2D, what have you got there"
- "This is my girlfriend" 3D looks and says "She's nice" somewhat uncertainly.
- "You should meet my girlfriend, here she comes"
- Both look to left of screen, 3D proudly, 2D in awe.
- 3D girl enters (gorgeous, curvy, sultry, sexy - newer 3D feel but still stylised)
- "Hi babe, this is 2D"
- She heads over to 2D and pinches his cheek (holding the side of his paper)
- "arent you cute"
- She then circles around him once tracing her hand across his chin
- As she circles he follows to a point and we see how truly 2D he is in comparison
- She then heads back to 3D and then head off screen together pinching each other on the butt
- we are left with 2D who is still dumbstruck (perhaps a little depressed as well)
- His hand holding the picture of his girl slowly slides down and he finally drops her
2D: old school, simple, feels inadequate, but still likes where he comes from and has character
3D: young, cocky, cool, confident, flashy, overt
3Dbabe: hot, stylish, playful, self assured, sexy
Character Sketches: (2D)
